Project HAL (Historic American Lynching) Data Collection
HAL is a database dedicated to filling gaps in the record of U. S. lynching incidents. Since November 1998, HAL has received over 150 contributions of data. We welcome submissions of data, either individual incidents or databases we can combine with HAL.
The web site has a submittable form indicating information the project is particularly interested in. We also appreciate suggestions for published, manuscript, and graphic sources.
HAL's data are free to scholars and students of lynching; please inquire through the web site.
Our coverage of each incident is basic, with very few narratives. At
present our coverage is best on the late 19th and 20th century South, but we also have data for Iowa, Texas, and Wyoming as well as a few incidents in other states. We are actively seeking non-South and antebellum coverage.
