Product Description

Supposedly given in 1712, the Willie Lynch Speech is widely believed to be authentic. Actually, as revealed in this book, it is an amateurish and malicious hoax. Unfortunately, many people taken in by this hoax have spread and championed it. An extreme example of this championing occurred in 1995 at the Million Man March. There, the Willie Lynch Speech was dramatically repeated in one of the speeches. Marchers and millions around the world who witnessed the March through television and radio were presented with this hoax as fact and history. In the Death of the Willie Lynch Speech, Professor Manu Ampim exposes the myth of Willie Lynch. Ampim does this by documenting the 20th century origin and fraudulent history of the Willie Lynch Speech and speculating, correctly, about the author's identity--forcing the admitted hoaxer to confess.

This volume contains the fake Willie Lynch Speech correspondence between Ampim and the admitted hoaxer, and the admitted hoaxer's confession.
