Civil Rights Memorial:   In 1988 the founder of the Southern Poverty Law Center won a $7 million verdict against the KKK for lynching a black teen in Mobile, Ala., that marked the end of a Klan responsible for some of the most heinous murders of the civil rights era.  Maya Lin was commissioned to design the Civil Rights monument. Her inspiration was "until justice rolls down like waters and righteousness like a mighty stream," used  by Dr. King in his "I Have a Dream" speech.

Another great Maya Lin design- the Civil Rights Memorial in Montgomery, AL.

I knew about the Civil Rights Memorial by Maya Lin in advance of my visit. I still wasn't prepared for the power of the pieces and the space that make it up. Deeply moving and unforgettable.
