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.

Choosing to Participate

The COVID-19 pandemic is the latest in a long line of emergencies that have challenged our nation and our world.  One thing that history has taught us, unfortunately, is that fear, anger and prejudice drive some people to find scapegoats to blame and victims to stigmatize in times like this.

In 2017 and 2018, MOSH hosted a poster exhibit called Choosing to Participate, organized by the Smithsonian Institution Traveling Exhibition Service (SITES) and Facing History and Ourselves.  The exhibit examines the impacts of racism and injustice and the choices we can make to ensure that our communities are supportive and inclusive.  The exhibit carries a strong anti-bullying message and asks if we choose to be an upstander or a bystander when we witness people attacking others.

Thanks to SITES, MOSH is pleased to present Choosing to Participate as a traveling outreach exhibit. An accompanying book for teachers is available for downloading at https://www.facinghistory.org/books-borrowing/choosing-participate-revised-edition.
