Remembering Aaron, Anthony and Randall

Washington County Remembrance Project

A ceremony this weekend will unveil a marker noting the murders of three Black Fayetteville residents by a white mob. The three enslaved people who lost their lives to racial terror in Washington County, Arkansas in 1856 were accused of murdering their enslaver — an accusation, researchers claim, is based on hearsay evidence. 

Kyle Kellams is KUAF's news director and host of Ozarks at Large.
