The bodies of Dooley Morton (L) and Bert Moore, of Lowndes County, are shown hanging from a tree after the two were lynched by an angry mob of white citizens on July 15th. They were torn away from police officials, who arrested the men when a white woman identified the pair as the ones who had made the attempt to criminally attack her. (Photo by O.N.
