Event description

Description

On June 15, 1920, a mob in Duluth, MN lynched three black traveling circus workers accused of rape. The memory of this crime largely disappeared until an article in a Duluth newspaper prompted a grassroots committee to take action. The result was America's first lynching memorial, erected in 2003 at the street corner where the crime occurred. In her lecture, she will explore the causes and effects of both the lynching and memorial, focusing especially on the Duluth's struggle to own and atone for the crime.

Starting at 6:30, on January 25 2018, NDSU Public History Student Kirbie Sondreal will be coming to the Comstock House to take part in the Hiram M. and Ada. M. Drache Lecture Series at the Historic Comstock House at 506 8th Street South in Moorhead, MN. She will be looking at an event that took place in Duluth, Minnesota and the monument that was erected to remember it:

After the lecture guests are welcome to mingle and enjoy light refreshments while exploring one of the areas most historic homes.
