This month: Duluth lynchings centennial symposium

In conjunction with the covid-19-delayed centennial observance of the 1920 lynchings of African American circus workers Isaac McGhie, Elmer Jackson, and Elias Clayton in Duluth, Minnesota, the Collaborative Legal Community Coalition is presenting a half-day online symposium, “Understanding our Duluth Lynchings: Racial Violence in America & the Road to Justice & Reconciliation,” on June 14.   

The program, which begins at 9 a.m., includes a keynote address by Bryan Stevenson, the founder and executive director of the Equal Justice Initiative (EJI) in Montgomery, Alabama, and author of the NYT bestseller Just Mercy.
