How Do You Reconcile a Lynching?
Play • 1 hr 2 min

Thursdays 11:00am - 12:00pm (EDT)


The audience will discover how communities can reconcile acts of terrorism and ways to create a new identity. Listeners will also hear how one person can make a difference.


In 1902, Alonzo Tucker was lynched in front of 300 spectators in Coos Bay Oregon. He was one of 4400 racial terror lynchings in the United States during the period between Reconstruction and World War II. The pain and trauma of these vicious acts have lasting impact for individuals of African American descent and for the communities where such violence took place. How does a community grapple with its past? How does one person become the voice to right such wrongs?

Join Rev. Dr. TLC and her guest, Taylor Stewart, as they discuss the importance of remembrance, repair, and redemption in reconciling a lynching.They will also discuss Stewart's work with the Sunrise Project whose goal is to assist former sundown towns in reconciling their history and by developing a new identity as a sunrise town.
