The National Memorial for Peace and Justice

Grandma Moses Press was founded in Montgomery, Alabama, in 1992. We recently returned home to visit the new National Memorial for Peace and Justice. The memorial is dedicated to the human losses suffered during the era of racial terror lynchings, which swept across the South and beyond in the decades following the abolition of slavery. I learned about a lynching in Pueblo, Colorado, around 1900, where 1,000 people came together to watch a black man hang. To learn more visit eji.org
