People were lynched, I was thirteen years old when I saw my first lynching.” If you tried to get away, them people would come and get you,” he said. They made my uncle dig his own grave and then they shot him. They were some people in Mississippi. They didn’t put on KKK hoods they would just come to the house and take you out and kill you. We never came out, at the end of the year they told us we didn’t make good. If they gave us five dollars, it could have taken five years to work it off.
