About this Event

"We all have a responsibility to create a just society."—Bryan Stevenson

In partnership with Bryan Stevenson's Equal Justice Initiative (EJI) in Montgomery, Alabama, a local coalition has been formed to recognize the legacy of lynching and racial terror that occurred in our country so that healing can occur. The EJI has documented 185 lynchings that took place in South Carolina—four of which can be traced to Greenville County.

Join us for the first of a series of community education events to learn about the life of George Green, a man from Taylors who was lynched in November of 1933. You will hear from a panel of local community leaders about how the impact of racial terrorism is felt to this day—plus get to participate in facilitated dialogue.

We are grateful to our coalition partners: the Greenville NAACP; Nicholtown Missionary Baptist Church; North Greenville University; Furman University; Village Engage; Soteria CDC; Upcountry History Museum; Long Branch Baptist Church; USC Upstate; St. Joseph's Catholic School; United Way of Greenville County; 212 Community Development Corporation; United Ministries.
