11A Lynching

University of Tennessee-Martin criminal justice professor Cindy Boyles talks to a reporter about the installation of a lynching marker on Friday, Jan. 10, 2020, in Jackson, TN. Boyles has led an effort to put a marker on the Madison County courthouse lawn remembering the brutal, public killings of two black people who had been accused of crimes in the late 1800s in Jackson, a West Tennessee city located about 85 miles northeast of Memphis. A dedication ceremony for the marker has been set for April. Photo by Adrian Sainz/AP
