Even after Emancipation, many African Americans endured daily harassment and violence especially in the South. A recent study also shows that during the same period of time, many young African Americans became forced prison laborers institutionally imposed by state government, local police and major companies such as US Steel. During the same period of time, they were targeted as an object of white lynching. There are many studies of the economic, social, political and cultural contexts of the lynching death, but only a few studies have paid a serious attention to its religious dimensions. This paper examines religious (Christian), festive and sexual-mythic dimensions of the public lynching death of African Americans based upon the studies by American scholars such as Donald Mathews, Amy L. Wood and others. At the same time, it points out the limitation of these approaches focusing upon the actions of the white supremacists as the location of making meanings since they could not explore into the dimensions of pain, agony and desperation of lynched African Americans. At the end, it raises an issue of how to recover the significance of the lynched death of the African Americans as the location of the public body and the historic form of terror.
