Title: [Virginia] Civil Rights Memorial - Welcome


Description: The Virginia Civil Rights Commission In 2005, the Governor Mark R. Warner and the Virginia General Assembly established a memorial commission tasked with selecting a monument for Capitol Square in honor of the struggle for full civil rights for Virginia's African American citizens. The Virginia Civil Rights Memorial Commission, comprised of elected and civic leaders, has selected a subject for the memorial, a site and an artist. The memorial will honor the student protest at the Robert Russa Moton High School in Farmville, Virginia. Their organized walkout in 1951, and subsequent lawsuit, became one of the cases joined with and argued before the Supreme Court as Brown vs. Board of Education of Topeka. The memorial will be sited on Capitol Square grounds in Richmond, Virginia, outside the gates of the Executive Mansion and to the right of the statue of Hunter McGuire, MD. Stanley Bleifeld, an accomplished sculptor, has been selected from a competitive process to capture the spirit of the protest and those who participated in this important event. The memorial will be ready for installation in mid 2008.
