An extraordinary mix of politics, humour and drama, The Lynching is a powerful, funny and moving account of a story they didn't want you to hear. Daughter of a Jewish American father and Jamaican mother, Jackie is born in New York to parents who were Freedom Riders, risking their lives in the fight for human rights in Jim Crow America. Her mother is eventually deported by the CIA never to see Jackie's father again. Eventually she comes to the UK and, settling in Deptford SE London, her house and windows become a target for National Front bricks and graffiti. Orphaned at aged 11, Jackie goes on to become an anti-racism activist and vice-Chairman of the Momentum Group until one day her world explodes. In a 65 minutes span, Jackie's show brings to life her mother, father, and many of the characters who shaped her life to tell a story of a brave and resourceful campaigner for justice and equality.
