An Era of Racial Terror: Jacksonville’s Legacy of Lynching

A set of eight illustrated text panels tells the stories of seven documented racial terror lynchings in Duval County between 1909 and 1925 and the historical context in which they occurred. This exhibit is a spin-off of the larger MOSH exhibition, The Legacy of Lynching: Confronting Racial Terror in America. One copy of the outreach exhibit travels throughout Duval County starting in October 2019. A second copy joined the tour in March 2020.

An Era of Racial Terror was organized in collaboration with the Jacksonville Community Remembrance Project, an initiative of 904WARD, and is supported in part by a grant from the Community Foundation for Northeast Florida. Additional funding was provided through a grant from the Florida Humanities Council with funds from the National Endowment for the Humanities. Special thanks to Baptist Health for additional support.

Neighborhoods

A set of large, illustrated text panels mounted in custom “doorframes” outlines the historical development of Jacksonville’s many and varied neighborhoods, from early river communities to automobile-based suburbs. The exhibit underscores the importance of vibrant, healthy neighborhoods to the city’s identity and well-being. This exhibit, supported by many local organizations and individuals, was originally shown at MOSH from September 2018 to May 2019. It is traveling around Duval County thanks to a gift from an anonymous champion of Jacksonville’s diverse and storied neighborhoods.
