Maryland Lynching Truth and Reconciliation Commission – An Introduction
October 20, 2019 @ 4:00 pm - 6:00 pm
In February 2018 Governor Larry Hogan signed into law the Maryland Lynching Truth and Reconciliation Commission after it unanimously passed both chambers of the state legislature. Join us at Sumner Hall to learn more about the mission of the Commission from one of its members, Professor Marshall F. Stevenson, University of Maryland, Eastern Shore and from Mr. Will Schwarz, President of Maryland Lynching Memorial Project – a nonprofit organization that works to advance the cause of reconciliation in our state by documenting the history of racial terror lynchings, advocating for public acknowledgement of these murders and working to honor and dignify the lives of victims.
