Part 2 of our discussion on Lynching in America. We meet with Jessica Luther Rummel, a doctoral student at UNT studying the theo-historical origins of white supremacy and family advocate with the Denton County NAACP to discuss the history of Goat Man's Bridge and the case with Lermont Stowers-Jones. We then take some time to lament our past. Finally, we end the episode with interviewing the parents of Lermont Stowers-Jones, Amy and Lermon, to talk about their experience.
