In 1964-65, the Council of Federated Organizations (COFO) came to Holly Springs, MS.
This monument is in honor and recognition of the students who came from across the country and joined with Rust College students and local citizens to register African American citizens to vote. Rust College is proud of its role in this historic struggle for voting rights and continues its role in improving the quality of life for its students and American citizens.

Therefore, this Monument is dedicated this the 6th day of November 2014.
