From Savannah Shepherd '16: Founder of The Delaware Social Justice Remembrance Coalition

 

 

We are proud to share information with our community about St. Anne's alumna Savannah Shepherd's project: 

The Delaware Social Justice Remembrance Coalition is an active group of community members interested in remembering the past in order to clear a path for a more positive and productive future. 

This group was founded by 15-year-old Savannah Shepherd after she attended the opening of the Legacy Museum and the National Memorial for Peace and Justice in Montgomery, Alabama in April, 2018. 


There, she learned of one of the few documented lynchings in the state of Delaware--the lynching of George White near Prices Corner in June 1903. Savannah became inspired by the efforts of the Equal Justice Initiative to spread awareness in the state and began the process to have a state historical marker erected at the site of this egregious offense. 


116 years after this occurrence, on Sunday, June 23, 2019, a historical marker will be erected by the State of Delaware. It is imperative that this is not a one-time effort. (Link to Invitation)

 
We must continue to uncover and remember the occurrences of the past and tell the stories that have brought us to where we are today. 


Please spread the message of this historic event that is sponsored by State Senator Darius Brown.
