Sunday, May 22, 2022, marks the 105th anniversary of the lynching of Ell Persons.  The Lynching Sites Project of Memphis would like to commemorate this event with a candlelight ceremony of remembrance.  We invite you to join us on Facebook Livestream as we have friends of LSP who will give the history of this tragic event, its impact on Memphis and the nation, personal testimony, and call and response. We hope this ceremony will bring repentance and healing from the events that happened over 100 years ago. Please join in via our Facebook page at 3:00 pm on Sunday.
