The Monument honors those who are making or have made significant contributions to the Civil Rights Movement in Jackson County. It is constructed of brick and polished concrete blocks, that are 8' high and 33' long, creating a half-circle around the Leon Jordan Statue. Each monument segment contains space for 500 memorial plaques. A total of 1,000 honorees will be listed upon completion. 100 individuals will be selected to be added to the wall each year, as directed by the Jackson County Freedom all Commission, which was established in 2014.
