The recent show at the Jefferson School African American Heritage Center, “Karma”, the move to have the Equal Justice Initiative memorial come to Charlottesville, the Virginia Film Festival showing of “An Outrage”, and the talk by UVA faculty member Carmeninta Higginbotham on the artist Reginald Marsh’s painting “Her First Lynching” demonstrate that lynching in America is an important topic to explore. Kate Fraleigh will provide some history and lead a discussion about the long lasting effects of lynching on both people of color and white people.
