This workshop will examine the coalition-building processes that planned the centennial events and installation of the permanent marker honoring Anthony Crawford, and other Abbeville lynching victims. With only seven weeks notice, and working with city officials and the Crawford family, these institutions executed two-days of well-attended events including an outdoor freedom school, a soil collection and consecration faith service, a scholarship essay contest and a community-wide service at Mr. Crawford's church.  We seek to understand what investments institutions had in the Crawford lynching memorial so that other communities may begin a new way forward creating public history events, markers and artifacts dealing with local ugly histories.
