Duluth Native Kim Green touches the names of the three men lynched in Duluth in 1920 at the National Memorial for Peace and Justice in Montgomery, Ala. on Friday, April 27, 2018. Though not all of them are featured inside the memorial, every U.S. county where a lynching occurred has its own steel pillar memorializing the victims ready to be claimed by the county.
