Today we continue of the top of the grassy hill to the memorial square. Designed to be covered, but open on both sides. The stunning memorial consists of "over 800 cortex steel monuments, one for each county in the US where a racial terror lynching took place. The names of the known victims are engraved on the columns." As one enters, the monuments are placed at eye level. As you proceed to the corner and turn, the flooring slopes downward giving the illusion that the monuments are rising. At the bottom, the monuments are directly overhead.
At the bottom, the outside wall features water pouring over with this beautiful inscription dedicated to all of the victims who remain unidentified.
