Thursday, August 26, 12:00 pm – In partnership with the Prince George’s Lynching Memorial Project’s Community Remembrance Committee, this program supports the outreach efforts to honor Thomas Juricks, a victim of a lynching in Piscataway, Maryland. Omar Eaton Martinez of Parks & Planning and Shemika Berry of the Accokeek Foundation will be part of the panel for this webinar event.
The event will highlight the following:
1) Importance of oral history and remembering the trauma of racial terror despite efforts (historical and current)to erase that history.
2) Intersectionality of the African American and Native American experiences in Prince George’s County.
3) Contemporary ways that people are remembering and honoring the victims of racial terror today (such as through Community Remembrance Projects)
