      Exploring America's Racism: Featuring the National Memorial for Peace and Justice

      The Library is partnering with the Southern Delaware Alliance for Racial Justice (SDARJ) and League of Women Voters of Sussex County to celebrate Black History Month. This program, organized by the SDARJ, focuses on the work of Sussex County's own Bryan Stevenson and the Equal Justice Initiative's Legacy Museum and National Memorial for Peace and Justice in Montgomery, Alabama.
      Valerie Reeves, Alicia Jones, and Rose Mary Hendrix, Sussex County activists for racial justice, review their experiences with landmark Civil Rights and Racial Justice museums and monuments in the Deep South. In a panel presentation supported by slides they will describe the monuments, the previously unknown stories commemorated by them, and the creators of established and newly opened sites.
