Our memorial will be located at the Liberty Theatre Cultural Center. The Cultural Center is located between 8th and 9th street and 7th and 8th avenue in downtown Columbus, Georgia. This location was ideal for slavers due to the close proximity with the Chattahoochee River.
Because our memorial has to do with families being torn apart, we decided that a Theatre and family environment would be a good place to put the monument with our goal being to draw the most emotion possible.
