Congratulations to AHA member Brandon Jett (Florida South-Western State Coll.), who was recently awarded a grant from the American Society for Legal History for his digital history project “Lynching in LaBelle.” The digital history project will include primary and secondary sources with information related to the 1926 lynching of Henry Patterson, biographies of those involved in the trial, official documents from the investigation, court records, and other artifacts that Jett and three students in his African American history course have collected.
