The Montgomery County Lynching Memorial Project seeks to educate and engage the community about the history and legacy of lynching and racial terrorism in Montgomery County, Maryland; to gather soil from the three known lynching sites in the county; and to work with community groups and the Montgomery County Commission for Remembrance and Reconciliation to procure the installation of historical markers and monuments commemorating these events. As a grassroots organization we partner with the Equal Justice Initiative’s Community Remembrance Project.
