Should be interesting documentary. But wasn't the last lynching actually that of James Byrd, Jr. in Texas in 1998?

Interesting question...apparently there is some debate about what actually constitutes and actual "lynching". Morbid topic, I know but for some reason there appears to be some debate about whether the Byrd slaying was a lynching.
