Notes:

Leo Frank – a man lynched in 1915 for allegedly murdering a young girl Mary Phagan at the pencil factory he ran in Atlanta, Georgia – is a relative unknown to most ordinary Americans. But to those who view his trial, conviction, and lynching as a seminal moment in American race relations, including the ADL and the Nation of Islam, periodically re-examine the case and use it to varying degrees as a weapon in an ongoing public relations battle to control the narrative on the American justice system and its overall fairness towards minorities.

  1. Much like the ADL, the French LICRA was also developed by Jewish activists after a trial involving a Jewish murderer. The difference there is that the criminal got to live out the rest of his life in peace.
