Conference explores legacy of lynching: “Without Sanctuary,” the Emory-sponsored photography exhibit at the Martin Luther King Jr. National Historic Site (President Bill Chace is seen speaking at the exhibit opening, above), has been a critically lauded addition to the conversation about lynching in the United States. In tandem with that exhibit, Emory will host “Lynching and Racial Violence in America: Histories and Legacies,” Oct. 3–6. More than 90 scholars will take part in the conference; two-time Pulitzer winner David Levering Lewis will give the Oct. 3 keynote.Click here or above for the full story and photos.
