THE DEATH OF THE WILLIE LYNCH SPEECH

Dear Students:
I received this email regarding the Willie Lynch Myth. This is an excellent critique/expose of the Willie Lynch "talk." I have created a page on my website called "Factoids." The URL is http://web.scc.losrios.edu/heningk/factoids.

DEATH OF THE WILLIE LYNCH SPEECH
by Prof. Manu Ampim


Since 1995 there has been much attention given to a speech claimed to be delivered by a "William Lynch" in 1712. This speech has been promoted widely throughout African American and Black British circles. It is re-printed on numerous websites, discussed in chat rooms, forwarded as a "did you know" email to friends and family members, assigned as required readings in college and high school courses, promoted at conferences, and there are several books published with the title of "Willie Lynch."[1] In addition, new terminology called the "Willie Lynch Syndrome" has been devised to explain the psychological problems and the disunity among Black people.

To read the entire article, please go to my website.

Cheers,

Prof. K. R. V. Heningburg
