Neither forgotten nor repeated.
The Tallahassee Community Remembrance Project, constituted of members from diverse congregations and organizations, will support and participate in a community effort to achieve three objectives:
Erect a memorial plaque remembering African American victims of Leon County lynchings;
Lead a service of repentance, reconciliation and healing; and
Organize events in perpetuity that would serve as a foundation and catalyst for remembrance of the atrocities of the past and present, acknowledging the challenging and difficult work of racial reconciliation through teaching, engagement, and action.
The Tallahassee Community Remembrance Project seeks to remember and acknowledge past and present racial violence and injustice in Tallahassee, Leon County, Florida, and to inspire our community to come together for dialogue, education, understanding, action and, ultimately, for healing and trust.
