Inscription.

"I think knowing one's history leads one to act in a more
enlightened fashion. I can not imagine how knowing one's
history would not urge one to be an activist."

Dr. John Hope Franklin

who forever changed the way that Americans think of
themselves and their past. In honor of his courage,
honesty, tenacity, and indomitable spirit, this

Reconciliation Park
is dedicated.
