FORSYTH COUNTY, Ga. — A marker on the Cumming courthouse square will soon remind residents of a lynching that changed the face of Forsyth County forever.

Shortly after the lynching of a Black man named Rob Edwards in 1912, more than a thousand Black residents were forced out of the county. Forsyth County remained nearly all-white for most of the 20th century. Today, only four percent of the county's population is Black. https://www.11alive.com/articl....e/news/investigation
