Get Involved

Alabama Memory is an attempt to recover the lynching history of the state.  Even as we recapture these hidden histories, we seek to be part of a broader public effort to rethink how we teach about legacies of racial violence.  We hope that you will join us. Please contact us anytime, at

College Students: 

  • Take HY 406: Alabama Memory: Lynching in Alabama. 
  • Take HY 301: Race and Injustice (a precursor to Alabama Memory)
  • We have students majoring in engineering, graphic design, math, and art history as well as African-American studies, English, education, American Studies and history.

For Teachers:  

  • Contact us for a meeting.  We have met with students and teachers from around the state about implementing their own version of “History of Us,” the high school level of Alabama Memory research.

Members of the Community: 

  • We hope that anyone with a story to tell or an interest in history will reach out to us. 
  • We are happy to provide additional information about individual lynching victims and work with you to do your own lynching history.  
  • Feel free to use our sources, essays, and citation and writing guides.
  • If you are a professional organization or civic group and would like to speak to us or have us share work with you, please contact us directly.
