The Tubman Museum — in collaboration with the Episcopal Diocese of Atlanta’s Beloved Community: Commission for Dismantling Racism, the National Center for Human and Civil Rights, the Georgia Humanities Council and the Historic Douglass Theatre — will host an important community discussion on the history and impact of racial violence in Georgia.
Activities on this day will include a morning Liturgy for Georgia victims of lynching at the Douglass Theatre and a presentation by Dr. Andrew Manis, Historian and Professor at Middle Georgia State University; viewing of images from the Without Sanctuary: Lynching Photography in America collection at National Center for Human and Civil Rights; and small and large group discussions.
Because of the nature and focus of these activities, this event is not considered appropriate for children.
Reclaiming Hope through Remembering is open to the public, but your attendance requires online registration here (a $10 fee to cover the cost of the lunch that will be provided in the afternoon). Attendance will be capped at 200 and participants are asked to commit to the full day’s events.
