Tapes from the Darkside: a true crime podcast

A True Crime, Society and Culture podcast
 1 person rated this podcast
On May 15, 1916 one of America's most savage crimes occurred in Waco, Texas. A 17 year old, mentally challenged black boy was tortured to death by a crowd of over 15,000 people. His name was Jesse Washington. This crime was then memorialized in photographs and celebrated nationwide as a victory over "barbarism."

This was not a solitary occurrence. Thousands of black people were lynched in similar ways through the Southern USA. And, today, the details of these lynchings are purposefully obscured.

To begin to heal any wound (especially one of this magnitude) the first step must be awareness and acknowledgement. Join us in Season 2 of Tapes from the Darkside, as we unflinchingly examine one of the most brutal crimes in American history: The Waco Horror.
