Olivet Baptist Church, St. Paul’s AME And St. Paul’s Episcopal Host Conversation About The Ed Johnson Project

Monday, January 8, 2018

Olivet Baptist Church, St. Paul’s AME and St. Paul’s Episcopal invite the public to a community conversation in support of the Ed Johnson Project as they work to bring healing and reconciliation to the city through dialogue and film.

The event will be from 5:30 - 7:30 p.m. on Thursday, at Olivet Baptist Church, Kingdom Center (behind the Urban League), 740 E. ML King Boulevard.

The Ed Johnson Story is a historical documentary that brings to light a series of incredible and tragic events in the first and only criminal trial ever held by the United States Supreme Court. The Ed Johnson Project is a unique Chattanooga project that has the potential to change and unite our community. At its core, the project is built on remembering the Ed Johnson story by creating a memorial which acknowledges the lynching of Ed Johnson, honors the courageous work of his attorneys, and recognizes the resulting U.S. Supreme Court case. In addition to creating a public space, the project is helping to fund a documentary, a scholarship and create a website with all known information about the project.
