In early 2022, THJ Board Member John Ashworth gave a presentation to Meta staff detailing his combined work with the Lynching Sites Project and Tennesseans for Historical Justice. John has held leadership roles in both organizations, including Executive Director for LSP and Board President for both LSP and THJ. He is currently a Board member with both groups. Under his wise leadership, both organizations have grown and contributed to the important work of racial justice and healing in the state of Tennessee.
John continues to work on the legacy of racial conciliation, and thanks to the generosity of Meta, this work will continue. We are so thankful to the Racial Justice Task Force at Meta for supporting the work of THJ with a donation.
