The “Lynching in LaBelle” digital history project was created with the assistance of Florida SouthWestern State College students, staff, and generous contributions from the Academic Research Council at Florida SouthWestern State College and the American Society for Legal History.

This digital history site was a massively collaborative endeavor between a variety of Florida SouthWestern State College students, staff, and Brandon T. Jett, a professor of history at FSW.

Brandon T. Jett is a scholar of race, crime, and criminal justice in the Jim Crow South. He has written extensively on lynching, policing, violence, and criminal justice throughout his career. You can find more information on his writing and scholarship at www.brandontjett.com. He lives and works in LaBelle, Florida.
