Partner Program from Equitable Dinners and the Fulton County Remembrance Coalition (FCRC): Stories from the Soil Inspired by the Equal Justice Initiative

  • This events has passed.

Equitable Dinners Atlanta and the Fulton County Remembrance Coalition present Stories from the Soil, a series of conversation dinner events remembering the lives of 36 documented victims of racial terror in Fulton County between 1889 – 1936. Stories from the Soil serves to create a narrative to counter that of white supremacy by identifying the humanity of the victims and the injustice imposed upon them.

The Fulton County Remembrance coalition has gathered the stories and collected the soil from approximated locations of the lynching or a location symbolic to the victim during healing ceremonies.

This year, Equitable Dinners will use the arts to give voice to the lives of those still speaking from the earth.
