The National Memorial for Peace and Justice

The Equal Justice Initiative’s Memorial for Peace and Justice sits on six acres of land in Montgomery and is the nation’s first national memorial to victims of lynching. The massive structure contains the names of over 4,000 lynching victims engraved on concrete columns representing each county in the United States where racial terror lynchings took place. Counties across the country are invited to retrieve duplicate columns with the names of each county’s lynching victims to be placed in their county.
