Deborah Rothschild To Speak on Memorial Monument to Lynching Victims

The Equal Justice Initiative creates the country’s first national memorial to the victims of lynching.

Deborah Rothschild is consulting curator to the Equal Justice Initiative and former senior curator at the Williams College Museum of Art. She will discuss the origin and evolution of Bryan Stevenson’s ambitious, multi-layered memorial on 6 acres of land in Montgomery, Alabama to the victims of lynching. The monument is designed to bring attention to a neglected part of American history: the era of racial terror during which close to four thousand African Americans in the South were lynched in brutal acts of violence.
