Montgomery, Al- If you were to open any American history book, the story of Lent Shaw and countless other Black men, women and children who met the same untimely death by lynching would be absent. It’s why civil rights attorney Bryan Stevenson has poured his time and resources into the National Memorial for Peace and Justice. The story of Lent Shaw is but one of many. We must warn you that some of the images are disturbing.
You can learn more about Lint Shaw’s story and over 4,000 African-Americans who were lynched across 805 counties in America when the National Memorial for Peace and Justice opens in Montgomery on April 26.
