Historical Marker Committee /
Erecting a Public Marker
There can be no reconciliation and healing without remembering the past.
The Historical Marker Project will erect narrative markers in public locations describing the devastating violence, today widely unknown, that once took place in these locations in Bulloch County and nationally.
This project requires a significant engagement effort across the community. The goal is to erect a public marker at a place of prominence such as the Bulloch County Courthouse, City Hall, and/or at the sites of the racial terror lynchings.
Adrianne McCollar is chairing the Historical Marker Committee that will complete this Community Engagement Project. Email to support or join the Committee.
Plan your visit to the museum and memorial.
EJI works with communities to install historical markers that acknowledge lynchings, like this one in Tuscaloosa, Alabama.
