BlackProGen LIVE! Episode 83b: Stories from the National Memorial for Peace and Justice, Part II

In 2018, The Equal Justice Initiative (EJI) opened the The National Memorial for Peace and Justice which memorializes more than 4,400 African American men, women, and children who were hanged, burned alive, shot, drowned, and beaten to death by white mobs between 1877 and 1950. Episodes 83a and 83b feature the family history of some of the victims documented in the memorial in an effort to humanize and bring light to their lives outside of a tragic event they have been associated with.
