Lynching in Maryland: The Journey from Truth to Reconciliation

  • Reginald F. Lewis Museum 830 West Pratt Street Baltimore, MD, 21201 United States (map)

The MD Lynching Memorial Project works to advance the cause of reconciliation in our state by documenting the history of racial terror lynchings in Maryland, advocating for public acknowledgement of these murders and working to honor and dignify the lives of the victims.

To help achieve those goals, a half-day conference “Lynching in Maryland: The Journey from Truth to Reconciliation,” will be held on Saturday, October 13, 2018 at the Reginald Lewis Museum in Baltimore. In addition to commemorating the 85th anniversary of the lynching of George Armwood, the conference will include presentations, films and discussions examining Maryland’s legacy of lynchings, the damage it continues to inflict and how we can begin to heal those injuries.
