Remembering the
Rockville Lynchings

In November, MoCoLMP members attended the dedication of historical markers recognizing Mr. Sidney Randolph and Mr. John Diggs-Dorsey. Both men had been dragged by mobs from the jail, now the site of the County Council Building in Rockville, where the markers now stand.

In advance of the Rockville dedications, Montgomery College and MoCoLMP held two conversation circles on campus to talk about Mr. Randolph and Mr. Diggs-Dorsey, who were lynched in the area. We continue to strengthen our collaboration with the college.
