The Penalty for Success:
One Family's Story of a Lynching

Josephine Bolling McCall was five years old when her father was lynched in 1947 outside Montgomery, Alabama. Elmore Bolling had fought rampant discrimination in the Jim Crow South to build several successful businesses, making him wealthier than many of his white neighbors. This, his family believes, is why he was lynched. In his daughter’s self-published book, The Penalty for Success, she challenges us to reconsider lynching as a means by which whites eliminated competition from black business owners as part of a pattern of racist violence that terrorized African Americans for generations
This event is free and open to the public. Light refreshments will be served.
