A memorial can serve to recall the past, to commemorate people and events that brought us to the present moment, to create a cause for contemplation or a sense of awe.
At the request of Governor Pat McCrory, the N.C. Historical Commission and the N.C. African American Heritage Commission will examine alternatives with respect to diversifying the memorials on the State Capitol grounds to address the under representation of African Americans.
