The attached is a magazine article published during the first week of 1933 that reported on the high spirit of optimism enjoyed by the Association of Southern Women for the Prevention of Lynching, and their executive director, Mrs. Jessie Daniel Ames (1883 - 1972). This group of Southerners were hoping that through their efforts, and those of other like-minded organizations, 1933 would be a year without a single lynching:

"Turning back the pages, we find that thirteen lynchings were recorded in 1931, twenty-one in 1930, ten in 1929, eleven in 1928, and sixteen in 1927. Ten of the persons lynched in 1931 were in the hands of the law. Seven were taken from jails, one from a hospital, and two had been released on bail."

"Officers of the law had prevented fifty-seven attempts at lynching. Seven of these instances were in Northern and Western states, and fifty in Southern states."

Other articles on this site have recorded that throughout the course of 1933, there were twenty-eight lynchings that took place.
