Anti-Lynching Campaign: 1922
This set is the first of a series on marches on Washington DC and rallies at the Lincoln Memorial for civil rights prior to the 1963 March on Washington.

This first set relates to an anti-lynching campaign, including the first mass civil rights march on Washington, that culminated in 1922.

The campaign was ultimately unsuccessful--the legislation passed the House of Representatives, but southern Democrats staged a filibuster in the Senate and the bill died in December 1922.

More coming soon.
