Six acres of land owned by the Equal Justice Initiative&mdash;the legal services nonprofit Stevenson founded in 1989&mdash;will memorialize the more than 4,000 victims of what Stevenson calls racial terror lynching in the American South between 1877 and 1950. A nearby museum will tell the history of slavery, lynching, segregation, and mass incarceration as a single narrative.</p></em><br /><br /><p>Designed by <a href="https://archinect.com/firms/cover/106488/mass-design-group" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">MASS Design Group</a>&mdash;which has previously worked on the Kigali Genocide Memorial&mdash;the memorial stems from a comprehensive report on lynchings released in 2015 by the Equal Justice Initiative. The memorial will feature six-foot columns, each representing counties where lynchings took place. For each column, a duplicate will be placed in the surrounding courtyard and eventually relocated to their respective counties as they directly confront their part in this history.&nbsp;</p> https://archinect.com/news/article/55700823/all-hale-a-film-set-against-the-backdrop-of-the-rural-studio-in-hale-county-alabama ALL HALE, a film set against the backdrop of the Rural Studio in Hale County Alabama Archinect 2012-08-21T20:13:00-04:00 >2012-08-31T13:20:22-04:00 <img srcset="https://archinect.imgix.net/uploads/0a/0a70719mih8knvph.png?fit=crop&auto=compress%2Cformat&w=650 1x,https://archinect.imgix.net/uploads/0a/0a70719mih8knvph.png?fit=crop&auto=compress%2Cformat&w=650&dpr=2 2x, https://archinect.imgix.net/uploads/0a/0a70719mih8knvph.png?fit=crop&auto=compress%2Cformat&w=650&dpr=3 3x" src="https://archinect.imgix.net/uploads/0a/0a70719mih8knvph.png?fit=crop&auto=compress%2Cformat&w=650" border="0" title="" alt="" width="650" height="" /><em><p>Everyone, rich or poor, deserves a shelter for the soul. - Samuel Mockbee Tensions run high when a young female architect moves to a small but uniquely-built rural town and unwittingly falls in love with the son of the man responsible for the town&rsquo;s misfortune.</p></em><br /><br /><!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.0 Transitional//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/REC-html40/loose.dtd"> <html><head><meta></head></html> https://archinect.com/news/article/51269473/state-of-alabama-bans-sustainable-development State of Alabama Bans Sustainable Development Archinect 2012-06-13T15:07:00-04:00 >2012-06-14T10:01:26-04:00 <img srcset="https://archinect.imgix.net/uploads/18/18vc12iwaugs5byw.jpg?fit=crop&auto=compress%2Cformat&w=650 1x,https://archinect.imgix.net/uploads/18/18vc12iwaugs5byw.jpg?fit=crop&auto=compress%2Cformat&w=650&dpr=2 2x, https://archinect.imgix.net/uploads/18/18vc12iwaugs5byw.jpg?fit=crop&auto=compress%2Cformat&w=650&dpr=3 3x" src="https://archinect.imgix.net/uploads/18/18vc12iwaugs5byw.jpg?fit=crop&auto=compress%2Cformat&w=650" border="0" title="" alt="" width="650" height="" /><em><p>The folks in Alabama have just passed a law that says quite clearly that they don&rsquo;t want anything to do with sustainability.
