Please join the Washington County Community Remembrance Project (WCCRP) on Saturday, May 15th from 12:30-4 PM for a Dedication and Awards Ceremony. The Coalition will be honoring Aaron, Anthony and Randall, three enslaved people who were lynched in Washington County in 1856. Join us for food, music, and guest speakers to honor their memory. As part of the ceremony, we will award the winners of the Equal Justice Initiative Racial Justice Essay Contest and will hear the winning essay. The Ceremony will take place at the Fayetteville Public Library; please RSVP here to let us know of your interest!
Additionally, all are welcome to pay their respects at the unveiling of a memorial marker for Aaron, Anthony, and Randall on May 15th at 10am in the Oaks Cemetery. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions.
