Lynching History

I have been moved to learn more about the untold truth of the many thousands of folks killed in lynchings ever since I saw a photo in the Equal Justice Initiative (EJI) calendar from their Community Remembrance Project:"part of our campaign to recognize the victims of lynching by collecting soil from lynching sites and creating a memorial that acknowledges the horrors of racial injustice." 

I am making donations to EJI and getting calendars to share with folks who are interested. Ask me for more info.

This site has extensive information, an interactive map, eight heroes...and more:
