The Lynching of Zachariah Walker: A Local Legacy
VCAM Upper Create Space 206
Exhibition runs November 5-23

Curator walk-through by Drew Cunningham '20
Tuesday, November 13

This exhibit presents archival materials about the lynching of Zachariah Walker in Coatesville, Pennsylvania, in 1911. This exhibit provides a space to reflect on a very local legacy of lynching, and to consider how this legacy might challenge our sense of the form, geography, and temporality of lynching, as well as the identities of its perpetrators. You are invited to take notes and submit your own responses, which will be archived in the College’s Quaker & Special Collections.

Coordinated in conjunction with The Legacy of Lynching: Confronting Racial Terror in America exhibition at Haverford’s Cantor Fitzgerald Gallery, open until December 16, 2018.

Curated by Drew Cunningham ’20

Sponsored by the Hurford Center for the Arts and Humanities, the Cantor Fitzgerald Gallery, the Office of the Provost, and VCAM.
