The Phoenix Civil Rights Memorial (Peace) reflects the community's history within the context of the civil rights movement. The artwork, at Eastlake Park, 16th Street and Jefferson, consists of a small concrete amphitheatre covered by an arched steel canopy modeled after the Arizona state flag. It includes a timeline etched into stainless steel plates, denoting critical events in the civil rights movement (both locally and nationally) over the past 100 years.
The City of Phoenix is updating the final panel of the timeline on the memorial. A task force consisting of members from the city's advisory Human Relations Commission and Arts and Culture Commission are collecting public feedback to develop recommendations that the Mayor and City Council will review. The deadline to collect public feedback has been extended to June 30, 2021.
