The Remembrance of Austin Callaway is Thursday at 6 PM at Warren Temple United Methodist Church in LaGrange. Join us there for this historic occasion.
We believe this event will be one of the few times–and maybe even the first–that a local government or police department has ever apologized for a lynching in the United States. Keep in mind: There were over 4,000 lynchings in just the 12 Southern states between 1877 and 1950. And these are just the ones that can be documented. And these are just the ones in the South.
If you cannot be present, you can still join us. The City will be live streaming at 6 PM on http://www.lgtv.org/Home/LaGrangeTV
In addition, LaGrange College will be live streaming Congressman John Lewis’s speech at http://www.lagrange.edu/lewis at 3:30 PM.
Troup Together is grateful for all who have worked to make this day possible.
