In 1692, 19 people were executed in Salem, MA, and hundreds imprisoned during a witch hunt we still discuss today. In some venues in Salem, one can still hear the echoes of the cries of raucous spectators shouting "Hang her!" In her Lunch & Learn session, Professor Robin DeRosa explains that when Salem tells its witch stories, history, tourism, and performance collide, and "truth," both moral and macabre, vies with spooky thrills for its authentic place in history.
