Description: Join us Saturday, February 15 from 10:00 AM to 12:00 PM as RoAnne Elliott & Margaret Holcomb discuss the Washington County Community Remembrance Project (affiliated with the Equal Justice Initiative).

A multi-racial group of Fayetteville citizens has embarked on a community remembrance project that involves uncovering a case of racial terror lynching that occurred in Washington County in 1856. Find out what happened, hear about the methods used by local historians to research the case, explore our thoughts and feelings about addressing this kind of history, and learn about a project that is underway to publicly memorialize the 1856 lynching victims.
