about

In an increasingly globalized economy, Sims argues that Ida B. Wells’s fight against lynching is a viable option to address systemic forms of oppression. More than a century since Wells launched her anti-lynching campaign, an examination of her work questions America’s use of lynching as a tool to regulate behavior and the manner in which public opinion is shaped and lived out in the private sector. Ethical Complications of Lynching highlights the residual effects of lynching as a twenty-first century moral impediment in the fight to actualize ethical possibilities.

Angela D. Sims is Assistant Professor of Ethics and Black Church Studies at Saint Paul School of Theology in Kansas City, MO.

Editorial Reviews

“We all know about the horrors of lynching, but Sims takes us beyond the obvious by conducting a thorough analysis of the motivations leading to and cultural consequences of this technique of discipline. The richness of this book is that the analysis is done through the eyes of Ida B. Wells, who serves as a model upon whom to construct ethical paradigms indigenous to the African American community.”--Miguel A. De La Torre, Associate Professor of Social Ethics, Iliff School of Theology, Denver
