A clearinghouse for information, analysis, and resources related to state sanctioned violence in the United States
These pages are currently under construction but in the meantime I highly recommend Collective Punishment: Mob Violence, Riots, and Pogroms Against African American Communities (1824 – 1974).

WWII-era race riots:
Post-war riots and mass violence:
1946 – Columbia, TN riot
1946 – Mass lynching in Walton Cty., GA Prosecutors believed the lynching happened with the knowledge and assistance of Walton County sheriff’s department. Despite FBI involvement in investigation, grand jury fails to return any indictments. This incident is discussed in Laura Wexler’s book, Fire in a Canebrake: The Last Mass Lynching in America.
