Louisville Courier-Journal Quoted AP Amy Kate Bailey in an article about The National Memorial for Peace and Justice

Apr 27, 2018
Louisville Courier-Journal quotes Amy Kate Bailey, UIC associate professor of sociology, in an article about The National Memorial for Peace and Justice, which honors lynching victims of color from across the nation, and whether the new Alabama-based memorial will lead Kentucky officials, communities and residents to confront their state’s racist history. Bailey, whose research includes historical patterns of racial violence in the American South, hopes efforts like the memorial in Alabama will lead to further examination of the South’s memorializing of the Confederacy. https://cjky.it/2r1vhGv
