Chapter 4: Never get over it: night-riding’s imprint on African American victims
Restricted access

Chapter 4 discusses the effects of night-riding and white terrorism on African Americans and on how they came to view the world in which they lived. Kidada E. Williams narrows her focus to the attack on one family, examining their lives before, during, and after the attack. Williams argues that night-riding and white terrorism impacted African Americans far beyond the moment of attack in ways that were physical, economic, and psychological and that these effects further shaped African Americans’ worldviews.
