SMH: 8-Year-Old Hung By Teens For Being Half-Black

It’s 2017 and I’m sitting before you today, with a story that sounds like it should be from anywhere between the late 1890’s through the1960’s. A story about lynching. 


A group of white teens attacked and hung an 8-year-old biracial boy by a rope, his family says, and police in Claremont, NH are refusing to release information in the case. 

The Root’s Angela Helm reported on Sunday that an 8-year-old biracial boy was hanged by his neck by other juveniles in what his grandmother said was a racist attack.
