Un forgiven - Legacy of a Lynching The famous photograph of America's dark era of lynching was taken not in the Deep South but in the northern town of Marion, Indiana, USA, on 7 August 1930. The photograph shows two black men hangingfrom a tree, with a huge crowd of white people looking on. There should, however, have been a third man hanged that day, but at the last moment the 1 6-year-old James Cameron was, he believes, miraculously spared.
Everyman goes to Marion to trace the legacy of its famous lynching and to examine race relations in the town today and visits Cameron, now 81, who talks about the events of that night.
