Ironically, I located this website on the 2012 birthdate of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. (1-15-12). I viewed your "Without Sanctuary" exhibit, when it came to the King Center in Atlanta, Georgia a number of years ago. My teenage nieces attended the exhibit with me and were speechless. Having been raised in Germany and Italy, they had never seen this side of African-American history. Outrage at lynchings were shared, in the exhibit, from distant lands like Paris, France, but not many from our own U.S. of A. Let it be known that lynching-like deaths have happened in Georgia within the past 20 years and that the struggle continues.

After leaving the exhibit, I began to create historical folkart and poetry for children. My first panel was of two lynched souls whose bodies were revealed at dawn. It is very important for all Americans, especially our children, to learn about the history of all people in the making of the United States of America.

Thank you for choosing to share your surreal photo gallery with the world to chronicle a time all men and women were not seen as equal.
