March City Wide FORJ Meeting
Wednesday, March 4 at Angier School from 7-8:30pm
Presenting Josephine Bolling McCall
Josephine Bolling McCall is the author of The Penalty for Success: My Father was Lynched in Lowndes County, Alabama. The intended focus of her presentation is twofold: the story of how her father’s success as a businessman in Alabama led to his lynching, and how that impacts his descendants and the community even today. She will also provide updates on the Equal Justice Initiative’s Legacy Museum and Lynching Memorial in Montgomery, both of which honor her father as one of many victims. McCall challenges her audience to rethink the reality of life for blacks in the mid-20th-century rural South, and to consider how prospects for children living in Lowndes County now might be improved, particularly through the promotion of literacy.
This is a family event, recommended for children ages 12 and older.
