Topic: Wake Students Chronicle Lynching History
Last year, students from Wake County’s Middle Creek High School, along with students from two other local schools, worked with the Alabama-based Equal Justice Initiative to document the only confirmed lynching case in Wake County. Following this transformative work, students began working with the Wake County Truth and Reconciliation Commission’s ongoing efforts to bring a memorial marker and other activities to the area to shed further light on that event. We’ll hear from two of the students and the teacher who inspired them to embark on this journey.
