book cover for Stanly Has a Lynching

In 1892 Alexander Whitley, a white man, was lynched in North Carolina and became a local legend. Written by his great-granddaughter, Stanly Has a Lynching explores the ways his murder was justified for over a century through media, religion, balladry, and folklore.

Leader: M. Lynette Hartsell was born in 1948 in the heart of Stanly County. She practiced law in Durham, NC, for 36 years and also served as a mediator and as an arbitrator in civil matters. Hartsell lives in Cedar Grove, NC with her partner, Laurie Fuchs.
