Digital Interactive Telling the Story of Racial Terror in America

As part of its work to change the narrative about race in America, the Equal Justice Institute (EJI) extensively researched the period between the Civil War and World War II, when more than 4,000 African Americans were lynched in this country. EJI published its findings in the report Lynching in America: Confronting the Legacy of Racial Terror. With support from Google, EJI has created Lynching in America, a free digital interactive experience inspired by the original report. This project tells the story of racial terror in America and explores how its legacy continues to shape the nation today. Visitors to the website can read the full report, with additional materials and research for educators. They can listen to audio stories from generations affected by lynching and view a film of one family’s painful journey south. They can also explore interactive maps on the impact of lynching. By creating a digital experience for a wide audience, EJI hopes to spark an honest conversation about the nation’s history of racial injustice that begins a process of truth and reconciliation.
