White women, rape, and the power of race in Virginia, 1900-1960

Using 288 cases of black-on-white rape in Virginia from 1900-1960, Dorr challenges the traditional notion of black-on-white rape in Virginia, arguing that a white woman's report of rape by a black man did not inevitably result in his execution. Instead, black-on-white rape in Virginia from 1900-1960 was a more complex issue of race, gender, and class. Includes events occurring in Charlottesville.
