“The Irondale Memorial Coalition is working toward a soil collection and historical marker for William Wardley, who was the victim of a racial terror lynching in Irondale in 1896. Our goal is to memorialize William Wardley; to educate Irondale about our community’s history of racial terror violence; and to advocate for solutions to ongoing injustices.
Alex Melonas and Pastor Mike McClure lead the coalition. To get involved, email firstname.lastname@example.org.
We will hold our next coalition meeting on Sunday, October 20th, from 4pm-6pm, at the Irondale Public Library.”
