Kudos to The Sun once again for shining a light — on the front page and “above the fold” — on the sad story of lynching in Maryland (”‘How did I not know this?’ An Eastern Shore community reckons with the lynchings in Maryland’s past,” June 5). It has long been hidden, so thank you for helping us confront this painful legacy.
