Lynching Memorial

More than 4400 African American men, women, and children were hanged, burned alive, shot, drowned, and beaten to death by white mobs between 1877 and 1950. Millions more fled the South as refugees from racial terrorism, profoundly impacting the entire nation. Until now, there has been no national memorial acknowledging the victims of racial terror lynchings. On a six-acre site atop a rise overlooking Montgomery, the national lynching memorial is a sacred space for truth-telling and reflection about racial terror in America and its legacy.

Slavery by Another Name is the title of both a book and a documentary film that challenge  one of Americas most cherished assumptions: the belief that slavery in this country ended with the Emancipation Proclamation.  

They reveal how even as chattel slavery came to an end in the South in 1865, thousands of African Americans and some poor whites were pulled back into forced labor with shocking force and brutality.

It was a system in which men, often guilty of no crime at all, were arrested, compelled to work without pay, repeatedly bought and sold, and coerced to do the bidding of masters. Tolerated by both the North and South, forced labor lasted well into the 1940’s.
