Please join us at the Irondale public library on Saturday, May 18th at 6pm for the Irondale Committee’s first community engagement meeting. We will have a discussion about our proposed historical marker in Irondale to memorialize the lynching of William Wardley. At the event, the Irondale community will:
- Introduce the Irondale comittee
- Hold a question-and-answer session to improve the historical marker projec and address community concerns
- Discuss how we can broaden our coalition to better represent the Irondale community.
The Irondale Committee works in Partnership with the Jefferson County Memorial Project, a grassroots coalition working to memorialize the history of racial terror victims and claim our monument from the Equal Justice Initiative’s National Memorial For Peace and Justice.
