National Memorial for Peace and Justice
The Equal Justice Initiative, the Montgomery-based non-profit organization that challenges racial injustice and mass incarceration of blacks, sponsors two memorials that spotlight the history of lynching during post-Civil War Reconstruction and Jim Crow eras. The six-acre National Memorial for Peace and Justice honors the 4,000 blacks who were murdered by white terrorists in the South. Suspended steel columns list the names of victims by county.
