‘Architecture Built to Heal’ …. “Memorial to Peace and Justice Built In Alabama …. National Memorial to Peace and Justice …. “!!

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

NowThis Politics

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.

Emma González …. “🙏🏽 March for Our Lives …. Eloquent, Stirring Speech …. What a Strong Message! 🙏🏽 …. “!!


~~March 25, 2018~~ 

… ‘and the children shall lead’ … 

WOULD NEVER

Ever since Valentine’s Day 2018, the day the Parkland, Florida mass shooting happened, this phrase has become ingrained in my mind.

These teenagers are taking over this sad American reality.

Like Emma, there are plenty others. There are those we know already by name who have been thrust into adulthood too soon. They have taken their role as serious as the reality is.

They are claiming their future as they should.

Here’s one of the many examples seen on March 24, 2018 …

~Dear Evan Hansen Song in Memory of the Orlando Victims~

In recognition of the one-year anniversary of the attack at Pulse nightclub in Orlando, Florida, where, on June 12, 2016, 49 people were killed and 53 others were wounded, the creators of mashup music videos #HAM4BEY have released their newest collaboration: a moving rendition of “You Will Be Found” from Dear Evan Hansen in memory of the victims.

The music video series was created by artist Michael Korte.

The performers featured are Mario Jose, Vincint, Danielle Withers, and Eric Lyn.

The track was arranged by David Rowen, with vocal production by Alexander Blake. The video was filmed and edited by Baxter Stapleton.

On June 12, 2016 – the same day as the Tony Awards – a gunman opened fire around 2 AM in Orlando’s Pulse gay nightclub, where more than 300 people were inside.

The attack marked one of the deadliest against the LGBTQ community in the nation’s history.

REST IN PRIDE

~Rainbow Flag Creator Gilbert Baker Dead at 65~

Thank you Gilbert for giving our community one of our greatest gifts.

You are a trailblazer for #LGBTQ youth around the world.

You will be missed!

It Gets Better Project

Gilbert Baker (June 2, 1951 – March 31, 2017) was an openly gay American artist and civil rights activist who designed the rainbow flag in 1978. Baker’s flag became widely associated with LGBT rights causes, a symbol of pride that became ubiquitous in the decades since its debut.

The colors on the Rainbow Flag reflect the diversity of the LGBT community.

When Baker raised the first rainbow flags at San Francisco Pride (his group raised two flags at the Civic Center) on June 25, 1978, it had eight colors, each with a symbolic meaning:

Hot Pink: sexuality
Red: life
Orange: healing
Yellow: sunlight
Green: nature
Turquoise: magic/art
Blue: serenity/harmony
Violet: spirit
