Lynching marker to expose Alabama county's racial violence

Lee County Remembrance Project


The Lee County Remembrance Project plans to honor four Black men who were killed by white mobs over a century ago.

Co-founder Ashley Brown said the group hopes to erect a historic marker that tells the victims' stories outside the county courthouse. She said they also want to establish an official day of remembrance for the victims. 

The other co-founder Olivia Nichols said the community has been shaped by the generational trauma from these murders.
