This Memorial, made in honor of the victims of the 1920 Duluth lynching, is located in downtown at the intersection of First Street and Second Avenue.  It is not far from the location where the atrocities took place.  Standing from the vantage point of the photographer of this picture, one need only turn to the right to see the view in the pictures below.


Above is a photo of the original lamp post where the triple lynching took place.  To the left is the way the street looks today.








Since there are no known photographs of the three men killed, the artist used three young, African-American men, who live in Duluth, as models for the sculptures.  It is another symbolic way of trying to bridge time and attempt some kind of honor for those wronged.
