Darn Impressive Report on the 1898 Wilmington Race Riot

 LeRae Umfleet, 1898 Wilmington Race Riot Report, May 31, 2006.  As the reports observes this was primarily a Democratic Party coup d'etat that removed Republican Part control of Wilmington city government.  Along with the 22 certain deaths (likely many others were not recorded) there is a detailed analysis of the economic consequences for African-Americans in Wilmington.
