KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — An historical marker in Kansas City, Missouri, commemorating the 1882 lynching of a black man by a white mob that was damaged last month will be removed.
KCTV-TV reports that the marker will be removed Friday.
The marker in a Kansas City park was installed in 2018. It details the case of Levi Harrington, who was killed by a white mob on April 3, 1882, after he was falsely accused of killing a white police officer earlier that day.
The marker was thrown down a hill in mid-June. It’s unknown who did it or why.
