    I have a friend whose grandfather and great uncle escaped a lynching in Guilford County during Jim Crow times. The brothers separated to Increase the chances that one would survive. Grandfather went to Pittsburgh, where my friend was born in the fifties.
    I don’t know how much of this story she can tell, but I have thought about encouraging her to share somewhere. It sounds like her family was dramatically affected by conditions set out on your Wall of Shame.
    I am white. I gave my great aunt’s papers to Georgia Tech, where they were digitally located by her alma mater, UNCG, and were accessed by the writer of Hidden Figures. You just never know how all our stories fit together.
