Past, Present, Future: The Jefferson County Memorial Project

December 20, 2020 @ 1:30 pm - 2:30 pm

This program is free, but we ask that you consider supporting JCMP by participating in their Holiday Hygiene Drive, up through 12/16, or sending in a financial contribution.

The Jefferson County Memorial Project is a grassroots coalition focused on documenting victims of racial terror lynchings in Jefferson County, educating the public, placing markers at the sites of these events and advocating for racial justice in the present day. Joi Brown is a founding core coalition member and current director of JCMP.
In this conversation, we’ll focus on the connections between past, present and future; slavery, convict leasing, and mass incarceration, as well as JCMP’s important work in the Birmingham community. Join us to learn more, including how you can get involved.

We’ve heard many of you express a desire for social connection and are expanding our virtual programming to include small group discussions. On select programs, we’ll invite you to stay on the Zoom immediately following, for 15-20 minutes of discussion and kibitzing in small group break out rooms. Think of this as the time after the program where you’d usually linger and chat!
