Elaine Race Riot
The Elaine race riot, also called the Elaine massacre, began on September 30–October 1, 1919 at Hoop Spur in the vicinity of Elaine in rural Phillips County, Arkansas. With an estimated 100 to 237 blacks killed, along with five white men, it is considered the deadliest race riot in the state and one of the deadliest racial conflicts in all of United States history.[4] (Because of the widespread white mob attacks on blacks during these days, in 2015 the Equal Justice Initiative of Mobile, Alabama classified the black deaths as lynchings in their report on lynchings in the United States,[5] but this is not the consensus of historians.[4]) Located in the Arkansas

Jim Crow
Jim Crow laws
Jim Crow laws
were state and local laws that enforced racial segregation in the Southern United States. Enacted by white Democratic-dominated state legislatures in the late 19th century after the Reconstruction period, these laws continued to be enforced until 1965. They mandated racial segregation in all public facilities in the states of the former Confederate States of America, starting in the 1870s and 1880s, and upheld by the United States Supreme Court's "separate but equal" doctrine for African Americans. Public education had essentially been segregated since its establishment in most of the South after the Civil War. This principle was extended to public facilities and transportation, including segregated cars on interstate trains and, later, buses

Lynchings
Lynching
Lynching
is an extrajudicial punishment by an informal group[citation needed]. It is most often used to characterize informal public executions by a mob in order to punish an alleged transgressor, or to intimidate a group. It is an extreme form of informal group social control such as charivari, skimmington, riding the rail, and tarring and feathering, but with a drift towards the display of a public spectacle. It is to be considered an act of terrorism and punishable by law.[1][2] Instances of it can be found in societies long antedating European settlement of North America.[3][4][5] In the United States, lynchings became frequent in the South during the period after the Reconstruction era and especially around the decades on either side of the turn of the 20th century
