East Harlem and Yorkville

Given recent references to East Harlem as Upper Yorkville (and the reactions of East Harlem residents to this term), I was interested to note the title of a 1947 photograph iincluded in the Winter Programs 2004 calendar of the International Center of Photography: "The Game of Lynching. Yorkville, East Harlem," by Vivian Cherry.

That's interesting. What did the photo contain as context?

Yorkville, East Harlem

Actually, it is a very disturbing photograph of an African-American youth pretending to have been lynched--holding his head in the way a head droops when it is hanging in a noose. Hence the title "The Game of Lynching."
