Re: “Remember the 1927 lynching in Little Rock

I ran across the story of Mr. Carter's lynching several years ago while doing some research on African American history in the state of Arkansas. The story intrigued me so, that I attended a panel discussion a few years ago that featured members of Mr. Carter's family the members of the murdered girl's family. For those who do not seek this information and do not have an interest in our history, this will mean nothing. But for those who have driven or walked the last path Mr. Carter took before his murder, know and want a marker that shows that a human being was taken from his family simply because he was Black and was wrongly accused. It amazes me when people say WE should forget our past, when at the same time being forced to relive it daily. What our ancestors endured cannot be forgotten because it is engrained in our minds, our hearts and our DNA. And for those who chose to spout fake statistics about crime, understand that we know that you can make numbers say whatever you want them to say.
