The Power Of Public Monuments & Why They Matter

Published on Jan 23, 2019

The Shaw 54th Memorial on the Boston Common has been called “one of the monuments that changed America.” More than 120 years ago the bronze sculpture was placed strategically on Boston Common opposite the Massachusetts State House and dedicated to “the group of men who were among the first African Americans to fight in [the Civil] war.” As plans get underway to restore the memorial, four organizations—the National Parks Service, the City of Boston, Friends of the Public Garden, and the Museum of African American History— convened citizens together for a conversation to deepen dialogue about race, freedom, and justice and raise awareness of the significance of the memorial and the story it tells.

About the Renewal of the Shaw 54th Regiment Memorial

The Shaw 54th Regiment Memorial is at the heart of a powerful narrative that unfolds along Boston’s Black History Trail. The sculpture and its foundation requires significant upgrades to assure its longevity. A new partnership has been established to undertake a complete $2.8 million restoration of the Memorial to stabilize the monument. The work is scheduled to begin in the summer of 2019.
