CRRJ Director Burnham interviewed by Boston Review

CRRJ Director Margaret Burnham was interviewed by Jeanne Theoharis of the Boston Review, earlier this month.

Burnham spoke about her book, “By Hands Now Known: Jim Crow’s Legal Executioners,” and the ways in which Black people challenged and documented racist violence during the Jim Crow era.


This period was one of authoritarian rule by every definition that every political scientist worth their salt has ever used.

Theoharis is the author of “The Rebellious Life of Mrs. Rosa Parks,” and she spoke with Burnham via Zoom.
