1930 Marion Lynching

In 1930, Marion was the site of a brutal double lynching from which one man, James Cameron, escaped. Cameron's later activism reignited interest in the event, beginning in the 1980s and 1990s. In 2011, students from Marion High School created a series of articles examining the event from multiple angles. Read their work here.
