As a guest of Project Say Something and the University of North Alabama Office of Diversity and Institutional Equity, Lynne spoke at the University on Feb 25, 2019. Project Say Something of Florence, AL is campaigning to erect a monument of former residents Dred and Harriet Scott in front of their local courthouse to contextualize the Confederate monument that has stood there since 1903. The Scotts were chosen after a year-long campaign to educate, raise awareness, and seek an alternative to the existing monument, which is protected by Alabama state law. The Scotts’ struggle for justice inspired the group; they believe the Scotts’ perseverance in their fight for freedom is an important reminder for future generations that justice is often a struggle.
On a return visit to the St. Louis Ethical Society, Mrs. Jackson spoke to the Sunday Forum on Feb 17, 2019. She met some new friends and found herself eventually soaring with eagles!! Stay tuned…
Dred and Harriet Scott were represented at the Washington University program Black Struggle, Resiliency and Hope for the Future on Feb 10, 2019 in Graham Chapel.

For the third year in a row, on February 2, 2019, St. Stephen’s Episcopal School in Bradenton, Florida hosted the founder of Dred Scott Story for their students.
We believe this dedication is deserving of all the attention that can be given. Again, it is with sincere gratitude offered to Missouri Artist/Sculptor, E.S. Schubert for immortalizing Dred Scott with your work. Thank you.This portrait of Civil Rights Icon, Dred Scott was originally commissioned for the Hall of Famous Missourians. The first of the edition resides in the Missouri Capitol Building in Jefferson City, Missouri. This sculpture was dedicated on May 9, 2012, one month before the dedication of a statue of Dred and Harriet Scott outside of The Old Courthouse in St. Louis, MO, making it the first known monumental statue of Dred Scott.
