This man has a name. His name is Frank Embree.
He was falsely accused of raping a 14-year-old white girl.
Embree maintained his innocence but confessed after receiving over 100 lashes.
With tears pouring down his face, he agreed to own up to the charges if the police agreed not to torture him any further.
He was castrated, skinned (front and back), lynched and burned alive in front of a cheering crowd on July 23, 1889.
