National Memorial for Peace and Justice opens

I’d like to visit the new museum in Birmingham, Alabama.

4,000 lynchings

It’s inspired by the Holocaust Memorial in Berlin and the Apartheid Museum in Johannesburg.

Lest we forget.

The National Memorial for Peace and Justice, opening to the public on April 26, 2018, will become the nation’s first memorial dedicated to the legacy of enslaved black people, people terrorized by lynching, African Americans humiliated by racial segregation and Jim Crow, and people of color burdened with contemporary presumptions of guilt and police violence.  

I saw this photo in a St. Louis museum. People protesting lynching.
