About this event

*Trigger warning: references to racial violence

Fort Worth Lynching Tour: Honoring the Memory of Mr. Fred Rouse is a group bike and car tour to sites associated with the 1921 lynching of Fort Worth resident, Mr. Fred Rouse. In the 1920s, Fort Worth, TX, had one of the largest Ku Klux Klan memberships in the United States. Klan members paraded openly through downtown Fort Worth dressed in full regalia.

The tour is accompanied by a downloadable, augmented reality app that can be used at each of the sites to research and discover the history of Mr. Rouse’s murder at the hands of a White mob.

With Fort Worth Lynching Tour: Honoring the Memory of Mr. Fred Rouse, we work to dismantle racism and undo the effects of anti-Black racial terror violence by coming together and physicalizing liberation. We do this by caravanning through the same streets and reversing the actual route, riding bikes and driving cars openly to remember Mr. Rouse. Fort Worth Lynching Tour: Honoring the Memory of Mr. Fred Rouse is both an event to memorialize as well as to reclaim space and one another.
