Cape Fear Museum of History and Science is hosting an exhibit presented by the New Hanover County Community Remembrance Project (NHCCRP).
The display is a collection of marked jars that were filled on November 6, 2021, at a ceremony in the 1898 Memorial Park. The jars show the names of victims of the massacre and coup that occurred in Wilmington on November 10, 1898. The jars were supplied by the Equal Justice Initiative (EJI) in Montgomery, Alabama where a duplicate set of jars are displayed in their Legacy Museum. The 1898 soil jars are housed in a wooden display case created by Kids Making It, a non-profit organization on Castle Street.
The exhibit will be on view through November 20, 2022, in the lobby of Cape Fear Museum.
