There are many images from our Southern history that we may not want to remember, but we need to, in order to learn from them and not repeat that same history in the future. Lynching is one of those dark, painful chapters of the South’s history that Levine Museum of the New South is featuring in its new exhibit “Without Sanctuary: Lynching Photography in America”. We’ll meet with a panel of historians to talk about images collected in this graphic exhibit and the stories behind them.
Dr. Jeffrey Leak - Associate Professor of English at UNC Charlotte, and Director of the UNC Charlotte Center for the Study of the New South
Dr. Claude Clegg -historian and author of Troubled Ground: A Tale of Murder, Lynching and Reckoning in the New South, about the Salisbury Lynching
Emily Zimmern -president of Levine Museum of the New South
