Clayton Jackson McGhie Memorial: Nonprofit Mission Award Winner

Filed under: Awards, History, Nonprofit — Mary Poggione @ 10:32 am

Clayton Jackson McGhie MemorialThe Clayton Jackson McGhie Memorial nonprofit foundation has won a well-deserved  Nonprofit Mission Award for its role in fighting racism.

The memorial, dedicated to the victims of the 1920 lynchings in Duluth, was unveiled in 2003, but since then, the organization has remained active in developing programs for community education and school curriculum.

If you would like to read the history of the lynchings in Duluth, check out Michael Fedo’s The Lynchings in Duluth or try Warren Read’s memoir The Lyncher in Me about his being the great-grandson of one of the men responsible for the crime.
