Jars Of Soil Commemorate Missouri's Victims Of Terror Lynchings
Levi Harrington, a Black man, was hung from a Kansas City bridge in 1882 for a crime he did not commit.
As part of the Community Remembrance Project of Missouri, soil from the site of Mr. Harrington's death was collected and will be displayed at the Black Archives of Mid-America in a glass jar along with those of five other victims of terror lynchings in Missouri. Staci Pratt explained how the Community Remembrance Project started and the importance of remembering the victims of these acts.
