A dialogue on lynching
Qcitymetro.com and the Levine Museum of the New South recently partnered to host a tour and dialogue centering on the powerful exhibit “Without Sanctuary: Lynching Photography in America.”
About 30 people – a full house -- showed up to attend the Saturday, Dec. 14, event.
Some who toured the exhibit said they were surprised by the emotions it evoked. Younger viewers said they were unaware of an era when black men and women in America were lynched with impunity.
In the video below, Qcitymetro editor/publisher Glenn Burkins talks about why he felt it was important to host a reader dialogue about the exhibit.
"Without Sanctuary" will be at the Levine museum through Dec. 31.
On Sunday, Dec. 30, at 4 p.m., the museum will host a closing program for the exhibit. The community is invited to light a candle and share final thoughts. The Sycamore Project Dancers will perform.
