Jackson, TN is bursting with racialized history. A short walk in any direction will likely confirm this…. it is abundantly clear that we as a people remember that which we purpose to remember.
In August 2017, a small group of community members gathered outside the Madison County Courthouse to host a candlelight vigil for a woman few have heard of. This woman’s name was Eliza Woods, and she was lynched 133 years ago in Jackson, TN.
