Ed Johnson And "The Intentional Omission"
In 1906, Ed Johnson was dragged from his jail cell and lynched on the Walnut Street Bridge here in Chattanooga.
A memorial at the bridge is expected to be complete next year.
Japorsche Pettaway wrote about the case as a student of our campus, The University of Tennessee at Chattanooga.
Her article - “The Intentional Omission” - appeared online a few months ago in Catalpa, published by UTC’s Department of English.
I caught up with her earlier this summer.
