On Saturday, June 12, Ashley Brown and Olivia Nichols presented a new marker as phase one of the Lee County Remembrance Project. The marker serves as a reminder of the historical lynchings of four black men: John Moss, George Hart, Charles Humphries and Samuel Harris. A ceremony was held beforehand at First Methodist Church on Avenue A, where several spoke, sang and shared their stories.  For more photos, turn to A10.
