This weekend we witnessed the opening of the Smithsonian’s National Museum of African American History and Culture. There is another monument in the making that few have heard about that, I feel, is just as important: The Memorial to Peace and Justice in Montgomery, AL.
An idea spearheaded by the Founder of the Equal Justice Initiative, Bryan Stevenson, and designed by architect Michael Murphy, The Memorial to Peace and Justice is an incredibly important step in the quest to heal our nation and its people.
Honoring the over 4,000 lives lost to lynching in the American South, the Memorial will be a place of reflection, as well as a place of rest until every soul can be identified and brought home.
Take 15 minutes today and watch the Ted Talk below. Be part of the solution. Be part of the change.
