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. 

On February 21, 2023, the Statesboro City Council unanimously approved the placement of a marker memorializing the victims of racial terror lynching next to City Hall. The marker will be installed on January 11, 2024 at a public ceremony.


EJI works with communities to install historical markers that acknowledge lynchings, like this one in Tuscaloosa, Alabama.
