NATIONAL LYNCHING MEMORIAL

Memorial Honoring Lynching Victims Being Built In Alabama

 “Architecture that’s built to heal”

The Memorial to Peace and Justice, informally known as the National Lynching Memorial, is a national memorial planned to commemorate the victims of lynching in America, and is expected to open in Montgomery, Alabama in April 2018. The memorial is to be built in the downtown area of the state capital by the Equal Justice Initiative, a non-profit based in Montgomery. Also planned is a museum, From Enslavement to Mass Incarceration, to be built near the Montgomery site where slaves were auctioned at market.

The monument “will consist of hundreds of floating concrete columns that will represent each county in the United States and contain the names of more than 4,000 lynching victims”.

It is designed by MASS Design Group from Boston, and will be built on six acres purchased by EJI. According to the EJI, there were over 4000 documented lynchings of black victims between 1877 and 1950; the purpose of the monument is to name and thereby honor them.

Outside of the structure in the surrounding field is another set of columns identical to the ones hanging in the Memorial. These columns, however, are not meant to stay at the Memorial. The outside pillars are intended to be temporary because The Equal Justice Initiative is asking each of the counties which these columns represent to come and claim their monument. They hope that with the claiming of the pillars, there will be a way to see which counties have representatives willing to confront the horrors of their past, and to strive to move forward, and which do not.

Equal Justice Initiative Lynching Museum, Montgomery Alabama Opens in 2018

This memorial honors the thousands of African Americans who were lynched between 1877 to 1950

Wes Johnson was about 18 years old when he was murdered in a cotton field in southern Alabama. It was 1937, and according to newspaper reports at the time, a mob of men had dragged him from his jail cell before he could stand trial for the charge against him: assaulting a white woman. Today, only one photograph is known to exist of Johnson, a single picture to preserve his image for posterity – his lifeless body hanging from a tree.

Bryan Stevenson wants to honor the legacy of Johnson, and thousands like him, with a new memorial for victims of lynching in America. Stevenson is a lawyer and founder of the Equal Justice Initiative, a non-profit organization that investigates the lynchings of African Americans. To commemorate the victims whose cases they’ve examined, the organization recently bought six acres of land in Montgomery, Alabama and constructed a memorial.  

Last night, April 8, 2018, on 60 MinutesOprah Winfrey gets an early look at the memorial, which will open to the public on April 26. The memorial contains 805 steel markers, one for each county where lynchings occurred for more than 70 years following the Civil War.

The markers are suspended in air to evoke the horror of being hanged.

To tell that story on 60 Minutes, Winfrey and a team of producers felt it was important to show historical photos of lynchings, images that are likely to disturb many viewers. In an interview with 60 Minutes Overtime, Denise Schrier Cetta, the producer of the story, and Jeff Fager, the executive producer of the broadcast, explain their decision to air such upsetting photographs.

An Open Letter To Congress …


‘OPEN LETTER TO CONGRESS’ … We the People!! Boom …

Filosofa's Word

09 April 2018

Dear Member of Congress,

I am told that you have concerns about your upcoming performance review on November 6th, as well you should.  Your employers, I and many others, are very displeased with your job performance and frankly, I am already seeking your replacement in the event you do not turn things around very quickly.  It appears the problem lies with the fact that you have forgotten to whom you owe your allegiance.  It was I and my fellow citizens who hired you, and it is to us whom you have a responsibility … all of us, not just some.

First, allow me to make one thing perfectly clear:  Donald J. Trump is not your employer!  He may have given you to believe that he is, but he is not.  He is merely another employee of the organization that is run by We The People…
