KVSC Presents Trial By Mob: The Duluth Lynchings Docudrama & Discussion

Facebook Twitter

01/25/2015 - 10:30 AM

KVSC presents the radio docudrama Trial By Mob: The Duluth Lynchings.

The 1920 lynching of three young black men in Duluth is a tragic part of Minnesota's history. On Wednesday, February 25 at 7 p.m. in the Atwood Memorial Center Theatre at St. Cloud State University a preview of the docudrama and community discussion will be held.

The event is free and open to the public.

"Trial by Mob: The Duluth Lynchings" is a first-time production of a Michael Fedo script, based on Fedo's 2000 Minnesota Historical Society Press book "The Lynchings in Duluth."

Fedo, producer Jo McMullen-Boyer, docudrama director Carol Cooley, lead anti-racism educator at SCSU Debra Leigh and criminal justice professor Barry Schreiber will preview segments of the hour-long drama and share their insights on making the docudrama as well as what can be learned today from this part of Minnesota's history that is widely unknown.

Trial By Mob: The Duluth Lynchings will air at 12-1 p.m. on Sunday, March 1 on KVSC followed by the program discussion from 1-2 p.m. The entire two-hour program will be available as a free podcast.

On the evening of June 15, 1920, a crowd of thousands attacked the police station in Duluth, pulling Elias Clayton, Elmer Jackson and Isaac McGhie from their jail cells.  The three young black men were beaten and hanged by their necks from a lamp post at Second Avenue East and First Street.

The men, who were working for a traveling circus, were accused of raping 19-year-old Irene Tusken on June 14. Little evidence would be found to corroborate these claims. A June 15 examination of Tusken by Dr. David Graham, a family physician, showed no physical signs of rape or assault.

No one was ever convicted for murdering Clayton, Jackson and McGhie.

"Trial by Mob: The Duluth Lynchings" was recorded, mixed and mastered by Nick Hendrickson, a satellite truck engineer for Arctek HD. Among the cast of 14 actors and more than 10 vocal extras were SCSU students, former students and alumni, including senior J.T. Scott, Minneapolis; sophomore Korina Borash, Esko, John O'Toole Peterson, St. Cloud; and Andy Valenty, St. Cloud. 

The production was made possible, in part, by a grant from Minnesota’s Arts and Cultural Heritage Fund.
