A lynching that took place 97 years ago in Abilene, Texas, was publicly recognized for the first time Saturday. A college student's curiosity played a key role in making it happen.
Bria Kimble, a senior sociology major at McMurry University, recently read a book called Lynching in America for a class.
“I'm always interested in researching things so I went to Google, typed in 'lynching in Abilene, Texas' and I found Grover Everett,” she said. “From there it just kind of spiraled into more questions and trying to figure out what happened."
