Remembrance Project

Historical accounts say there were four lynching deaths in Leon County between 1897 and 1937. Those tragedies will be formally recognized with the placement of a memorial near the site of the old county jail on Saturday, July 17. To talk about that and the hope that awareness will lead to deeper understanding and empathy are Remembrance Project members: Byron Greene, Blan Teagle, Maxine Jones, Brant Copeland and Penny Young.
