Duluth Lynchings of 1920

Today, we’re going to look at the Minnesota Historical Society’s coverage of the Duluth Lynchings (1920). Look through the chronology, take notes and answer the following questions. You may need to do some outside reading to answer the questions. If you do so, provide your sources. 

  • How do the images support the story told by the MHS? 
  • How do the oral histories change or add your understanding of the lynchings? Why are they significant?
  • What would you add to this curation project to make it more approachable to people today?
