Description

 Facing Injustice . . . Lynching in America and On the Banks of the Wabash

With Gary Daily, ISU Associate Professor Emeritus
   
Cost: Free
   
Lynching is a dark and grisly side of American history.
   
This program will trace the origins of lynching, detail notorious examples (graphic descriptions will be presented), and tell the story of a lynching in Vigo County. Finally, the work of the local “Facing Injustice” initiative in conjunction with the Equal Justice Initiative (EJI) in Montgomery, Alabama, will be described. Open discussion on any of these areas will be encouraged. The Facing Injustice committee is looking forward to hear from the public on its plans for the future.
