As Coventry suffered the worst bombings of the Second World War, a 16-year-old boy was lynched in isolated woodland outside LaGrange, Georgia.
Throughout Black History Month Coventry Cathedral hosts an exhibition that explores the legacy of bigotry and racial violence through documentation of the collection of soil by his descendants at the site of his murder.
