IT HAPPENED HERE: LYNCHING AND REMEMBRANCE

It Happened Here builds on the Equal Justice Initiative’s research into the history of lynching across America, situating Mecklenburg County’s two recorded lynchings and the local effort to memorialize the victims within the national conversation.

The exhibit also features “AN OUTRAGE,” a documentary filmed on location at lynching sites in six states and bolstered by the memories and perspectives of descendants, community activists, and scholars.
