Im glad that istopped by to see this memorial site. Statutes and plaques were very moving and solemn. Its always good to reflect on the past. Would have given this place 5 stars but there were four homeless people camped out at the gate that did make me feel a little leary and there was some trash/clothes laying about. Betsides... More

This memorial is a nice little break in the middle of the city. We took another reviewers advice and parked at Walmart then walked across the street. There was a homeless man sleeping behind the main statue so we tried not to disturb him. It seemed as if there was supposed to be a water feature that wasn't working.

In a busy city, aside a busy freeway, this memorial speaks to us in many voices. Picture the same site 100 years ago, an unincorporated Negro burying ground in Frogtown, since vanished, next to a groundlevel railroad yard. Nearby State Street hosted Lena Horne and the Hall Street area grew our black leaders. Most burials are unrecorded and this quiet... More

I so enjoy these types of memorials. I find most people will not find the best and most thoughtful places. I search for the meaningful!

Stunning artwork and a moving tribute to a period in Dallas' that was almost lost to memory. It's also within walking distance to three other historic cemeteries in the shadows of downtown Dallas: Greenwood, Emanuel Hebrew, and Calvary. Note: Emanuel is closed from sundown Friday until Sunday morning.

This is an almost unknown public memorial that I found to be much more than first appearance. I wandered in, while walking near a friends condo. And made note to return. It is a memorial of inspiration and peace, but I found much more significance in the plaques and sculptures than I expected. I spent a couple hours reading and... More

Beautiful statues, very quiet memorial to a generation of people that were forgotten in Dallas. This monument is very nice. A little background: in the 1930's Hwy 75 was built on top of an African American cemetery, they just plowed over the graves. 5 decades later the City of Dallas with help built this memorial, to this day this is...
