1906 Atlanta Massacre; in Le Petit Journal

Paris: Le Petit Journal, 1906. First Edition. wrappers. 1st Continental appearance (?), covered earlier in the U.S. and U.K.  Original sheets (4), as issued. Very good.  The massacre took place from September 22–24, upwards of 100 Black residents of Atlanta were murdered in an event that was, in the immediacy, misrepresented regionally, downplayed nationally and then ignored locally for 100 years. The details can be easily researched, with numerous scholarly works published in the past 20 years. We’d say this illustration, and its report, would add to any African American archive that includes the event. Very good / Hardcover. Item #1001
