​The memorial reflects the history of Eastlake Park within the context of the civil rights movement. The artwork consists of a small concrete amphitheatre covered by an arched steel canopy modeled after the A​rizona state flag. The focal piece of the memorial is a bronze table-like structure that depicts how Eastlake Park appeared in the late 1890's, with a dateline etched into stainless steel plates, denoting key events in the history of the park and the civil rights movement (both locally and nationally) over the past 100 years. The concept for the artwork was developed with significant input from the Eastlake Park community.​​​
