SPLC Civil Rights Memorial

The Civil Rights Memorial at the Southern Poverty Law Center in Montgomery was created by Maya Lin, the same artist who designed the famous Vietnam Veteran’s War Memorial in Washington, DC. It is an inverted conical fountain with 40 names of Civil Rights heroes who lost their lives engraved underneath the glassy surface of the flowing water, inviting visitors to reach into the fountain to touch the engravings.
