"Not everything that is faced can be changed, but nothing can be changed until it is faced". ~ James Baldwin

Have you heard of the Duluth lynchings? Did you know there is a memorial about the lynchings? 

I had not heard about the lynchings until they were referenced during Dr Boyd's presentation. And I certainly knew nothing about the memorial. If your knowledge level on this topic is like mine, you will really learn a lot from this presentation, "Bringing the Truth to Light".  Kim Green, Broad Member of the Clayton Jackson McGhie Memorial, will share information about the lynchings and the formation of the Clayton Jackson McGhie Memorial. Their mission is to foster racial justice and promote healing and reconciliation in our community.   https://claytonjacksonmcghie.org/

As a young wife and mother, she volunteered in the Early Childhood Family Education Initiative through the ISD709 School District. For two years, she assisted children with language skills in the Reading Corps Program and she was a women’s advocate at Community Action Duluth. 

Throughout her life, Kim has devoted herself to being an advocate for racial justice and for people in poverty. Currently, Kim works for the Lincoln Park Children & Family Collaborative which supports community-driven solutions to reduce health inequities. She was voted onto the Clayton, Jackson, McGhie Memorial Board in 2018 & became a co-chair in 2020. She enjoys gardening and is a cite-coordinator for the Duluth Community Garden Program.
