Is The Franklin County Community Remembrance Project
(FCCRP)? - A Presentation
- just click on the webpage to advance to the next slide
Equal Justice Initiative - EJI's Community Remembrance Project is part of a campaign to recognize the victims of lynching by collecting soil from lynching sites, erecting historical markers, and creating a national memorial that acknowledges the horrors of racial injustice.
The Franklin County Community Remembrance Project is our participation in this national project to raise public awareness of and provide public education on the history of racial and economic injustice and inequality in America and its particular legacy of racial terrorism.
In the words of EJI, "As more communities join in this effort to concretize the experience of racial terror through discourse, memorials, markers, and other acts of truth-telling, more are overcoming the shadows cast by these grievous events."
We Franklin County citizens hope to recognize clearly our historical and current shadows. By so doing we hope, while still accepting them, to move beyond them into a clear day when Franklin County will be a place for equal justice and opportunity for all.
Four main milestones mark the Community Remembrance Project.
1. Forming and Developing a Community Remembrance Coalition
2. Conducting a Soil Collections Project
3. Installing a Historical Marker denoting the Erastus Brown Lynching
4. Installing our own Franklin County National Memorial for Peace and Justice Monument weathered steel column representing a lynching in Franklin County
