The Equal Justice Initiative National Memorial for Peace and Justice and Legacy Museum is the country’s first Memorium for the legacy of enslaved Black people and is informally referred to as the National Lynching Memorial as it details the nation’s dark history of torture, humiliation, and subjugation of African Americans. The museum hopes to shed reverence and knowledge on these historical facts in a country that has so far to come in acknowledging and addressing these heinous acts.
