A sign urging people to vote is sparking a lot of conversation in
Indianapolis. The sign sits in front of Greater St. Mark Missionary
The sign reads on top, “Vote,” but it’s the imagery that has people
talking. One side of the sign shows slaves in chains, with the wording
beneath it “Lest we forget.”
The other side of the sign shows the historical image of the lynching in Marion of two black men in the 1930’s.
“It’s to let people know there’s been a price paid for the privilege
of voting. Often times people get complacent and don’t realize that
people made a sacrifice, matter of fact, the ultimate sacrifice for such
a privilege,” said Pastor Joy Thornton with Greater St. Mark Missionary Baptist Church.
