The Civil Rights Memorial invites visitors to touch the engraved names. The Memorial plaza is a contemplative area — a place to remember the Civil Rights Movement, to honor those killed during the struggle, to appreciate how far the country has come in its quest for equality, and to consider how far it has to go.  "We will not be satisfied until justice rolls down like waters and righteousness like a mighty stream." Martin Luther King
