The cover of The American Negro recreates a lynching postcard, perverse mementos that 19th and 20th century white Americans would pass around like trading cards. Some postcards would center the victims, gawking at their violated bodies with lurid satisfaction. Others would emphasize the crowd of onlookers, inviting the viewer, presumed to be white, to participate in the day's activity.
