America’s First Memorial to its 4,400 Lynching Victims

A sister-in-Christ Patricia Thomas and I spent three days last year visiting two new museums in my hometown Montgomery, AL. The Legacy Musuem, and The Lynching Memorial Musuem built on Caroline Street where I lived with my mother and siblings part of my childhood.

  1. Tangie, walking through those museum galleries was an eye-opening experience.
    I thank you kindly for introducing me to untaught knowledge of our melanated people. I heard of a few of the events and people illustrated in one of the museums but I had no knowledge at all of the events and people memorialized due to lynchings that took place in Montgomery, AL from my public schools or from anyone else until 2022.

    1. You’re welcome. Those museums and Felton opened my eyes too. Since some America schools are not allowed to teach ALL History, particular Black History, this is my way of sharing it with the world. Unfortunately, children are missing out on true History, all History. There is so much more than slavery.
