Lynching is a dark and grisly side of American history. This program will trace the origins of lynching, detail notorious examples (graphic descriptions will be presented), and tell the story of a lynching in Vigo County. Finally, the work of the local “Facing Injustice” initiative in conjunction with the Equal Justice Initiative (EJI) in Montgomery, Alabama, will be described. Open discussion on any of these areas will be encouraged.

The Facing Injustice/Equal Justice Initiative marker dedication will take place in Fairbanks Park, Sunday, September 26, 2021, 3 PM and all are invited to attend.
