DOCUMENT INFO
Description: Two wartime atrocities on the US homefront in particular drew expressions of maternal grief and outrage from African American women writers: the July 1917 race riots in East Saint Louis, Illinois, and the May 1918 lynching of Mary Turner and her unborn child in Valdosta, Georgia. Even after the population has fled in terror, even without a marker to signify the scene of the crime, traces and residues remain within the collective memories of both black and white Americans.14 Intertwined with the African American victimization and protest, the wood-ocean also preserves the memory of the depravity and evil of the white mob (306).
