Example text

Wells, already learning to be a writer, read Fortune’s papers and considered him a mentor. Another aspiring black intellectual to get his start in Fortune’s paper, John Mitchell Jr. became a columnist for Fortune’s New York Globe at age twenty. Like Fortune, Mitchell aspired to a national audience. Also like Fortune, Mitchell urged the national government to act against lynchers. Lynching, he wrote, was a national problem, therefore the national government should solve it. Like Fortune, Mitchell urged blacks to resist white lynch mobs with violence.

Communities could say that their survival depended on the willingness of citizens to step forward and act outside the law. White newspapers reported that African Americans themselves lynched, sometimes joining whites in biracial lynch mobs and sometimes forming all-black mobs. Anyone opposed to lynching ran the risk of seeming to side with criminals. For decades before the Civil War, when crowds lynched, the lynchers usually claimed that they acted with universal public support in response to some particularly heinous crime committed in the absence of effective law enforcement.

Like Fortune, he immediately plunged into the war against lynching. His stern denunciations of mob violence earned him recognition in the white New York World. Even Fortune, himself accused of lapsing into theatrics, thought young Mitchell sometimes overly emotional. During the Planet’s early years, Mitchell lived in an attic, personally hefting heavy stacks of newspapers to the post office at a time when he received no salary. His determination and self-sacrifice paid off. After a while, the stockholders lost interest, convinced the struggling editor would fail, and withdrew from the project.
