Lynchings

“Lynching in America: Confronting the Legacy of Racial Terror” unflinchingly explores America’s brutal history of lynching and provides a powerful history lesson, using individual stories that show, despite “emancipation,” thousands of African Americans were brutally murdered in this country in the name of the White supremacist status quo.

A museum will also go alongside the memorial to trace the country's history from slavery to present day. The structure is slated to open in April 2017.
