34 victims of racial lynching in Maryland pardoned posthumously

Gov. Larry Hogan on Saturday issued full posthumous pardons for 34 victims of racial lynching in Maryland between 1854 and 1933.

The governor spoke Saturday at an event in Towson to honor the life of a boy killed because of the color of his skin.
