About 200 community members gathered Sunday evening to hear reflections from attendees of a community civil rights pilgrimage that took place last month.

Ninety-eight community members took a nearly weeklong trip in July to the Equal Justice Initiative’s Legacy Museum and National Memorial for Peace and Justice in Montgomery, Alabama, to deliver soil from the Albemarle County site where John Henry James was murdered in 1898.

James was lynched after a mob removed him from a train that was transporting him from a jail in Staunton, where he had been awaiting trial for allegedly assaulting a white woman near Charlottesville.
