The Lynching Sites Project of Memphis is a network of people seeking to, in the words of Ida B. Wells, "shine the light of truth" on past wrongs with the expectation that being honest about the past will allow us to better understand the present and begin to heal. The website is one of the primary public faces that the project has to display their research on past lynchings via an interactive map, articles, and scans of archival material.
