Lynching was the illegal hanging of black men in the 19th and 20th century in order to keep the blacks in their place, in other words, at a level lower then the whites. Lynching was usually done by ignorant cowards who would never confront someone individually, but needed to appear in the middle of the night with a bunch of their friends to attack a single person. A lot of lynching was done by the Klan, but not in every instance.

Lynching most generally ends in death, although there have been some people who survived attempts at it, but then it is attempted lynching.

Most victims of lynchings were hanged. I believe the word lynch actually means to put to death by illegal action, generally by hanging.

How come Ida B. Wells was not recognized or given gratitude to stop lynching?

She was the first and only African American female who fought hard to stop lynching. There was only one lynching reported in the U.S AFTER SHE DIED, NO MORE LYNCHINGS WERE REPORTED!!! I'm doing a history fair project on this, could you people give me some ideas?

Ida B. Wells was an important leader in the nationwide crusade against lynching, but it's not accurate to say that she was the only woman committed to the anti-lynching cause. Also, it's inaccurate to say that there were no more lynchings in the U.S. after Wells died in 1931. The ugly truth is that lynchings continued, and Southern Senators continued filibustering against federal anti-lynching laws.

Perhaps I'm misunderstanding what you mean when you write, "There was only one lynching reported in the U.S AFTER SHE DIED, NO MORE LYNCHINGS WERE REPORTED!!!" Maybe you're saying that although there were lots of lynchings going on, only one was reported in the press during her lifetime, and none were reported in the press after she died. That's not true, either. There may have been many lynchings that received little or no press attention, but there were some particularly notorious ones that got wide coverage. Also, white lynch mobs were often proud of their handiwork and wanted to publicize it as a way of terrorizing black citizens. They often posed for photographs with the dead bodies of their victims, and circulated those photos as postcards, which is a kind of "reporting."

What was different about the terror wrought by the Ku Klux Klan and the terror of lynching in the 1880s?

What was different about the terror wrought by the Ku Klux Klan and the terror of lynching that began in the 1880?

Lynching in its self is terrorizing enough. The Ku Klix Klan also used intimidation to keep blacks and other minorities living in fear. People were beaten to a pulp and property was destroyed. The now infamous burning cross was left in the yards of many African Americans.
