The Alachua County Community Remembrance Project (ACCRP) began in January of 2020. Our purpose is to educate our community about the history of lynching and racial violence in Alachua County, and the legacy it has left in the persistent racial disparities we face. We do this through educational events, soil collection ceremonies to honor the victims, installation of historical markers, and high school essay contests. Join us! Info at truth.alachuacounty.us

 

This quilt was made to honor and memorialize the victims of racial terror in Newberry, Alachua County, Florida, and all who have suffered trauma from racial injustice.
