The Legacy Museum


The Equal Justice Initiative, the Montgomery-based non-profit organization that challenges racial injustice and mass incarceration of blacks, sponsors two memorials that spotlight the history of lynching during post-Civil War Reconstruction and Jim Crow ereas. The Legacy Museum on Coosa Street displays horrific photos of the publicized hangings which often drew crowds of spectators. Advance ticket purchases recommended.
