On Saturday, I went to the unveiling of a historical marker memorializing the lynching of Fred Rouse in downtown Fort Worth 100 years ago. The experience reminded me that though our country longs to be free of the ugliest parts of our history, the past still haunts us like an unruly ghost.
Nationally, we are wrestling with how we should remember history. I believe that we as Americans are strong enough to not be undone by simply acknowledging that racism exists and has existed since our country’s founding.
