Lynching in Amerika


This week, we launched Lynching in America, a new interactive website we created in partnership with Google.

This site brings together EJI’s extensive research and resulting data with the stories of lynching victims, as told by their descendants. Through six audio stories and a short documentary, Uprooted, visitors both hear and feel the impact of this dark time in history on generations of families. You can also explore an interactive map that includes incidents of racial terror lynchings and in-depth profiles of people whose lives were forever altered by these acts of violence.
Lynching in America is meant to motivate a conversation. We hope that you will not only visit this site but also share these stories with others, and — as simple as it sounds — talk about it.
