The lighting ceremony was held on December 17, 2021. Cobb Landmarks was honored to have Destiny’s Daughters of Promise in attendance. Through this partnership, students were able to attend the lighting ceremony, meet with the sculptors, tour the museum, and visit with our Food Historian and Living History Interpreter Clarissa Clifton.
Cobb Landmarks is honored to receive this gift from Lights Over Atlanta. The sculpture represents the work of students, poets, artists, and historians who came together for a common purpose - to shine a light on the 1,200 enslaved individuals whose names were not recorded and are now lost to time. We thank Lights Over Atlanta for shining a light on this important piece of public art.
We are committed to empowering our community with an understanding of the events, people, and places that formed our past, so that we may all strive for a brighter future. Won't you join us?
