Black History Month Program

There are three documented cases of lynching in Montgomery County: George Peck and John Diggs-Dorsey in 1880 and Sidney Randolph in 1896. The victims were all Black men in their twenties, two accused of rape and one accused of murder. Ahead of any legal conviction, they were each removed from custody in the middle of the night and killed by groups of White men, having never received a fair trial. Based on the recent compilation of hundreds of digitized newspaper accounts, researcher Sarah Hedlund presents comprehensive narratives on these three cases. Each man’s story is supported by quotes, in-person reporting, period maps, photographs, and genealogical research, in remembrance and recognition of this darker side of Montgomery County’s history. This program is presented in partnership with Montgomery History.
