We seen a motor car stop right in the part of 35th and Robey…

Lena Lenocker, a german woman that is american in case): we seen a vehicle stop right at the part of 35th and Robey now Damen and I also seen a person log off with an instrument upper body, and I also saw a mob after him. And because they handed down, we seen it had been Mr. Grimes, plus they chased him plus they hollered, “Get him! Get him! There’s a darky! Get him!” We seen him stumble — in accordance with that We go in to the home and phone up for the patrol. And when I arrived, why, someone stated that they had killed him.

A black 31-year-old Chicago native who worked at a clothing store and moonlighted as a piano tuner, survived the attack as it turned out, her neighbor James G. Grimes. Beaten and shot within the mind, Grimes, who had been hitched together with a 1-year-old son, ended up being kept blind.

O.W. McMichael, a part of this coroner’s jury ( in its report): Ninety % for the crowds had been simple interest seekers. The little, vicious element, finding shelter within the excited crowds, discovered reason to vent their impulses to rob and destroy, then split and conceal within the crowds or slink away.

Chicago Commission on Race Relations:

Usually the “sightseers” as well as those included in the nucleus did perhaps perhaps not know why that they had taken component in crimes, the viciousness of that has been maybe not obvious in their mind until later. With minds already served by rumors circulating anywhere crowds collected, it absolutely was an easy task to arouse action. A streetcar approaching and also the cry, “Get the niggers!” had been sufficient.
