Jasper (Texas)

Jasper is a city in the Deep East region of Texas.

Understand

Jasper gained a measure of notoriety when an African-American man was dragged to his death behind a pick-up truck in a gruesome lynching in 1998. Much of the town subsequently unified to express revulsion for the crime and opposition to the racial hatred that motivated it.
