Selma to Montgomery March Byway
Civil Rights Memorial (AL)
Designed by Maya Lin, who also designed the Vietnam Memorial, the Civil Rights Memorial honors the martyrs of the Civil Rights Movement through a stunning black granite outdoor exhibit, accessible all day, all year.
The plaza is a contemplative area -- a place to remember the Civil Rights Movement and its impact, to honor those killed as a result of the struggle, to appreciate how far America has come in its quest for equality, and to consider how far it has to go.
