  • Lynching in America
  • Lynching in America is the result EJI’s multi-year investigation documenting more than 4,300 racial terror lynchings of African American people in the United States. The report, second in EJI's series on America's history of racial injustice, explores the ways in which lynching profoundly impacted American race relations in every sphere, and also perpetuated a deadly presumption of guilt and dangerous-ness that plagues people of color still.


  • Segregation in America
  • Segregation in America, the third report in EJI's series on America's history of racial injustice, documents how millions of white Americans joined a mass movement of committed, unwavering, and often violent opposition to the Civil Rights Movement. EJI believes that understanding this mass opposition to racial equality, integration, and civil rights is central to confronting the continuing challenges of racial inequality today.

EJI's Community Remembrance Project is part of our campaign to recognize the victims of lynching by collecting soil from lynching sites, erecting historical markers, and creating a national memorial that acknowledges the horrors of racial injustice. 

Equal Justice Initiative created these curricular materials aligned with the Common Core State Standards. The lessons are intended to be adaptable to a variety of educational contexts.
