"The 1911 lynching of the African American woman Laura Nelson, who was abducted from her jail cell, raped and, along with her son, lynched by a mob in Okfuskee County, Oklahoma, is evocative of a story told many times over in the annals of America’s most shameful history. In this case, however, these component parts have merged into a single story that has resonated throughout the decades as a battle cry for the black woman in America, and for womanhood in general."
