Anthony P. Crawford: The Lynching of One of the Richest Black Men in Abbeville, South Carolina

12 Posted by - May 16, 2019 - BLACK MEN, Injustices, LATEST POSTS

Anthony Crawford was an African American who was killed by a violent lynch mob in Abbeville, South Carolina in 1916. Born during the Reconstruction era, his father was the owner of a small acreage of cotton fields. Crawford learned to read and write in a small school in town. After his father’s death, he inherited the land and increased the acreage by making further purchases over the years.

By 1916, it is said that Crawford had over 400 acres of land. Known for being one of the richest black men in Abbeville County, he gave land to his children and allowed them to build homes close by. He was also known for his zero-tolerance against disrespectful people. Once he was accused by a preacher for meddling in church affairs, so he had no problem jumping to his feet, striking the preacher, firing him. He was quoted as saying, “The day a white man hits me is the day I die.”

On October 21, 1916, Crawford was working as usual. He loaded up two loads of cotton and headed to W. D Barksdale’s store. He had a disagreement with the owner, a white man, over the price offered for his cotton. After the agreement, one of the Barksdale’s employees followed Crawford out of the store and struck him on the head with the handle to an axe. Crawford called for help, after which he was arrested, most likely for his own protection, as a mob of angry whites was already beginning to accumulate.

Crawford was held in jail briefly was later released on a $15 bail. After Crawford was released, a white mob was waiting and chased him into a nearby cotton mill. He fought for his life and struck one of the white men with a hammer. Crawford was then beaten and stabbed several times. He was again arrested, and the sheriff told the men that he would most likely die from his wounds.

The fear that Crawford might die before the mob could get to him coincided with the fear that the sheriff might allow him to leave town. Therefore, between 200 and 400 white men took over the jail, captured and disarmed the sheriff, and kidnapped Crawford.

Crawford was dragged through the black section of town with a rope around his neck. The mob then stole a lumber wagon from a black driver and used it to take Crawford to a fairground nearby. He was hanged from a tree and his body used for target practice. Although the governor got involved and demanded a full investigation, no one was charged for his brutal murder.

Even though you weren’t there you still benefit from the injustices of racist America. Dont cry foul while you build your house on your racist foundation…its not just Mr. Crawford. Dont forget the evil deeds of your forefathers against Africans, Indians, Chinese, Japanese…shall I go on. You did this collectively as a people. Dont try to distance yourself now…

            Unlike other games, the more often you play the blame game, the more you lose. Blame is a tool we use when we’re in attack mode.

            Blame is an excellent defense mechanism. Whether you call it projection, denial, or displacement, blame helps you preserve your sense of self-esteem by avoiding awareness of your own (white people) flaws or failings making it easier to blame someone else (black people) than to accept responsibility the many white people were and still are evil, vile and demonic…

          We as a people feel justified put the evil deeds of the white race as a whole. Because the so called good white people are never around or willing to speak up for what’s right. There is a saying. That when the good men do nothing evil wins. Now if the white race really wants to prove that all are not evil then those so called good whites need to start holding there fellow brothers that commit such evil acts against people of color Accountable. And stop supporting hate mongers like Donald Trump and news networks like fox and friends. And stop making excuses for ever white coward with a badge that claims that they feared for there life when facing an unarmed black man. But feel totally safe arresting armed whites with no fear for there lives then.

          Wow, another I’m just an innocent bystander. Regardless of how you feel in this moment. It was the injustice towards black that was brought about by your ancestors. If you look at history everywhere the white race went they tore apart families, they killed and stole. Not one time can I think of where they helped. Not to mention the pure hate and jealousy they had against blacks bettering themselves and their community that they had to go and destroy a whole town because of claims that ”One” black person supposedly committed, I.e, black wall street. So when y’all stop grouping us together maybe the same will be afforded to you.

After hundreds of years witnessing savagery for wealth and just to be evil it has finally rubbed off learned taught you know. Before the Caucasian this was not written these things weren’t happening.

          Hello. Reading all the comments and I concur. White people are pure evil. Today with Trump being in office, it only esclates the level of White supermacy. It didn’t take much for that feeling of supermacy to surface because it never was pushed far out of their minds.. The POLICE are still acting as if they are on Slave patrol. Remember the “cops” that were sent to hunt down run-away Slaves, well they still have the same mind set. Don’t say why you going back to Slavery, it’s because everything from that period is systemic. Whites are the cause of evertything pertaining to the Black race. Education, wealth, housing, job opportunities, and on and on. I don’t understand where White people get the idea that they are supreme.

            Now they are reaping and weeping from Wild Fires, Tornadoes, Hurricanes, historic Flooding from coast to coast.
            The Bible is Right and God is sending his Judgment ,and take note if you will, it is falling on communities dominated by descendents of those Terrorists and they are wondering WHY?!—

        After Mr. Crawford, was lynched, a mob went to his house and told his family, they had to leave. I forgot, but they gave them a short time. They all left and whites took over the land. I worked with one of his great grand daughters. The family, is still trying to get the land back, but it has been built up. I don’t know where the case is now. His story was told in an exhibit on lynching, at the Chicago Historical Society, years ago. It was called, “Without Sanctuary.” It also included, pictures of Mr. Crawford’s lynching and old newspaper articles.

Blacks in America have cried for many years and the bare facts here is that the blame game is not ending now. They also lack one common voice.

Do you believe, that they will teach you about Major Taylor, The Orangeburg Massacre, The Scottsboro Boys, the killing of Emmet Till’s father, in France. Do think they would teach you about, The Deacons for Self Defense, The 5 Nickels or Mr. Patterson, the Black man that was building cars in Ohio, BEFORE FORD. Hell no, they are not going to teach that.

    This man deserves a memorial, as do all African-American victims of lynchings. Denied justice and their basic human rights. What a dreadful way to lose your life. Does he have one? People, both black and white, should not forget.

    They recently printed this story in The State Paper. This type of injustice upset white people so much that they made movie’s on the subject. Fury with Spencer Tracy 1936, Ox Bow Incident 1943, Hang’em High with Clint Eastwood 1968. Another good movie is Cabin In The Cotton 1932.

    Since there is no limitation on murder cases, now with documented photos and court records that can identify the Victims and their Murderers, this is where the historians and researchers, who love to correct and lecture, could be devoting their efforts in researching out and identify the Murderers and their benefactors for retribution and restitution for their crimes.

    I guess we need to write a book Lynchings and killings of Black men in the North and South post 1800’s, 1900’s, 2000’s, like Without Sanctuaary!
    We should use this material, to talk about real injustice today from lynchinging murder to shooting murder of Black Men! Unless we shre this information in the school curriculum K thru 12 and Colleges and University courses Lynchings and killings (1500’s, 1600’s, 1700’s, 1800’s, 1900’s, 2000’s, we can’t expect healing today from racism, discrimination, murdering Black people and inequality in America!

      You can’t just wave that magic wand and proclaim that the past is the past. You’re speaking from a position of 350+ years of economic advantages that were unjustly gained. After depriving a people off their languages, cultures and humanity don’t you think it’s too convenient for you Europeans to attempt to wish your barbaric crimes away? Sooner or later reparations will have to be paid. There is a new Awakening among Africans worldwide and we already know populations of Europeans are dwindling. Your great grand kids will bear the brunt of their forefathers’ unprovoked atrocities perpetrated against Africans during the slavery and colonial eras. The creator is on our side.

    I often shutter to think and imagine the details of some of the many and various ways of torture and murder SOME evil white-folk perpetrated on our black ancestors; but “EVIL!” it was! We read about the beatings and lynchings that went on for many a years ,during that period of time, and up into the 30s and even 40s before it ceased to be “legal.” But! we sometimes fail to remember that the killing black-folk, at that time was a “SPORT” and we have only scratched the surface of the various ways blacks were SLAUGHTERED; just for “FUN!” I have no doubt that if we had the details of some of the methods it would boggle the mind and hearts of even many white-folks, as well! Suffice it to say that as horrendous t a thought as we can conjure, in our minds as to how blacks were treated then, ( and to a slightly lesser degree today), I am certain that It was far worse. Now! As explain, that, which makes me shutter it occurs to me an idea that no doubt, makes, (or should make) America, shudder, ( especially white, conscientious America), shudder; and that is the thought of REPARATIONS! I mean, how in the “heck” do you figure out, or “wrap your head around”, what is owed?

    Similar incident happened to my father in Oklahoma.
    He had land, a farm and was doing quite well.
    Three white men came on night kill him.
    My father hid in the loft of his barn and killed all three.
    My father was sent to prison for manslaughter and when released, sold his farm and move to Los Angels.

I am so glad your father was smart, protected himself, KILLED THOSE WORTHLESS SCUMBAGS and was not KILLED IN PRISON. If you don’t mind, I want to ask, how long did your father serve time in prison and when did this take place.

    the historical fact is, that there was slavery against black people committed by the white people. by the time the end of slavery came closer, the white slave owners and law system put every institution in place, to be shure that black ex-slaves should structurally and permanently stay dependent on white help, and or provisions. so, after the end of slavery, the white also started a campaign to let the black believe that slavery was/is from the past and that now there are new opportunities [… formulated by them].. for blacks to prosper. but at that same time the white man didn’t left their discriminatory believes and superior ideas behavior in the past and start on an equal basis with the black man. the opposite is true, that they continue to separate no-white communities, starting colonization in many continents of the world, starting an extraction system to take from poor countries and give almost nothing in return… even education was a commodity in hand of the white man. a lot more to say here but it will take to much time… and yes, indeed the question still remains for me: WHY ARE WHITE PEOPLE ” E N T I T L E D” to stick to their so called WHITE SUPERIORITY nature ALL THE TIME, and the black people ???,,, WELLLL, THEY SHOULD LOOK AT IT AS SOMETHING OF THE PAST AND GET OVER IT!!!… just that…
