Lillian Bell Text Transcript

Well, as I say, we came here in ’23. But I heard it from different sources. And so many people did barricade themselves in their homes, you know, and some got out of town; went across the bay to Superior. But it kind of settled down, you know. But it lasted for quite awhile. At the time we came here, you know, some of them still had that fear, because as I said before, this friend of mine said she never wanted to stay in Duluth after the lynching.
