This sculpture is dedicated to the Foot Soldiers of the Birmingham Civil Rights Movement.

With gallantry, courage and great bravery they faced the violence of attack dogs, high powered water hoses, and bombings. They were the fodder in the advance against injustice. Warriors of a Just Cause: They represent humanity unshaken in their firm belief in their nation's commitment to liberty and justice for all.

We salute these men and women who were the Soldiers of this Great Cause.
