New Lynching in South Carolina -- February 13, 2022

Chicago Star, 22-February-1947

The Chicago Star was an African-American owned newspaper. 

New Lynching in So. Carolina

While white terrorists were shooting into the home of a Negro family at Airport Homes in Chicago last Saturday morning, a lynch mob was murdering Willie Earle, 23-year-old Negro, in South Carolina.

The slashed and bullet-torn body of their victim was found on a roadside near Pickens shortly after he had been taken from the county jail.

The jailer, who unlocked the cell and gave Earle to the lynchers, said he didn’t recognize any of the mob though none of them were masked to conceal their identity.
