Description

The Fletcher Free Library hosts a presentation by Daimeyon Williams that walks through the ideology of The Legacy Museum: From Enslavement to Mass Incarceration and the Equal Justice Initiative (EJI) Lynching Memorial and relates them to mass incarceration, growing up African American in Vermont, and the implications of race on Vermonters as a whole.

From the website:

"Located on the site of a former warehouse where black people were enslaved in Montgomery, Alabama, this narrative museum uses interactive media, sculpture, videography and exhibits to immerse visitors in the sights and sounds of the domestic slave trade, racial terrorism, the Jim Crow South, and the world’s largest prison system. Compelling visuals and data-rich exhibits provide a one-of-a-kind opportunity to investigate America's history of racial injustice and its legacy — to draw dynamic connections across generations of Americans impacted by the tragic history of racial inequality."
