Travel Grant A

Montgomery, AL

This is the first memorial to lynching, yet there are hundreds of memorials in Montgomery dedicated to the Confederate. Across the country, there are very few memorials dedicated to women and people of color. Across the hundreds and hundreds of statues in New York City, just five depict historic women. There are 22 statues of men in Central Park alone, but not one (non-fictional) woman. In Washington, D.C., a city filled with marble memorials, there are five statues depicting women from history: Joan of Arc, Olive Risley Seward, Mary McLeod Bethune, Crown Princess Märtha of Sweden, and Eleanor Roosevelt. Do we as a profession have a role in changing this?
