A noose was found hanging at the National Museum of African American History And Culture in D.C. last week ––the fourth reported in the Washington region in one month. In the post-Civil War era of Jim Crow segregation, nooses were often used in the extrajudicial killing of African Americans. These lynchings were employed by hate groups like the Ku Klux Klan to terrorize communities outside their vision of white supremacy and nationalism. Decades after desegregation, nooses continue to be a symbol of racism and intimidation. Kojo discusses the historical significance of the noose, and the reactions it stirs today.
