Slavery lasted centuries for African-Americans in the U.S. and they still suffered after it ended.
The National Memorial for Peace and Justice, in Montgomery, Ala., recognizes Americaís hateful past. Itís the first memorial to focus on lynching in the U.S.
The museum has 800 pillars representing the counties where lynching occurred with the names of the people murdered inscribed on them. They hang from the ceiling to confront the horrors head-on, so it will never happen again.
