Jesse Washington was a black teenage farmhand who was lynched in Waco, Texas, on May 15, 1916, in what became a well-known example of racially motivated lynching. Although the lynching was supported by many Waco residents, it was condemned by newspapers around the United States.
In 1916, Waco, Texas, was a prosperous city with a population of more than 30,000. After it became associated with crime in the 19th century, community leaders sought to change its reputation, sending delegations across the U. By the 1910s, Waco’s economy had become strong and the city had gained a pious reputation. In Robinson, Texas, Lucy Fryer was murdered while alone at her house on May 8, 1916. She was found clubbed to death, sprawled across the doorway of the farm’s seed shed.
It was a grisly scene that included signs of sexual assault. Officials determined a blunt instrument was used as the murder weapon. On May 9, Fleming took Washington to Hill County to prevent vigilante action. Washington told them he had killed Fryer following an argument about her mules, and described the murder weapon and its location.
On the morning of May 15, Waco’s courthouse quickly filled to capacity in anticipation of the trial: the crowd nearly prevented some jurors from entering. After four minutes of deliberation, the jury’s foreman announced a guilty verdict and a sentence of death. The trial lasted about one hour. The lynching drew a large crowd, including the mayor and the chief of police, although lynching was illegal in Texas. Sheriff Fleming told his deputies not to stop the lynching, and no one was arrested after the event. Fred Gildersleeve, a Waco-based professional photographer, arrived at city hall shortly before the lynching, possibly at the mayor’s request, and photographed the event.
