Soul Repair: Recovering from Moral Injury after War, by Rita Nakashima Brock and Gabriella Lettini. After more than a decade of war in the Middle East, veterans are returning to civilian life with the hidden anguish of moral wounds.
Last year the Equal Justice Initiative documented over 4,000 lynchings of African Americans between 1877 and 1950 in the United States. The nonprofit organization is developing a museum to commemorate the victims. The museum, scheduled to open in April 2017, stands on the site of a former slave warehouse in Montgomery, Alabama. The memorial will contain rows of over 800 concrete columns representing the counties where lynchings took place, with the names of those lynched engraved on the columns. The columns are free-floating, suspended from the ceiling in imitation of hanging (Next City, August 16).
