FCRC invited members of the community to gather at Project South to hear the history of the Massacre from Ayinde Summers and Rev. Thee Smith before individuals and smalls groups took jars to locations around Atlanta where the documented lynchings that made up the Atlanta Massacre of 1906 took place. People were given the opportunity to collect the soil, honor the space, and remember the person before bringing the full jar back to Project South.
