HARRISBURG, Pa. (WHTM) - Members of the Peace Promenade Project are working toward Harrisburg's first monument to African Americans.
The plan calls for a life-size display of four Pennsylvania abolitionists and voting-rights advocates; Thomas Chester, William Howard Day, Jacob Compton, and Frances Harper.
The statues would pay tribute to the city's African-American history and honor the 15th Amendment that granted African-American men the right to vote.
The group is still working to get funding and nail down a design.
You can purchase a brick stone to go with the monument at an Aug. 26 event at the Harrisburg Midtown Arts Center.
