The past year has been filled with uproar and tragedy surrounding Confederate monuments. While some Americans are demanding these racist statues be removed, others are unable to let go of the country’s brutal past.

At Mic, we’re ready to tear these outmoded artifacts down and replace them with statues and memorials of our favorite black Americans. So we’re thrilled to announce that we’re launching the Black Monuments Project, which will identify one significant black person to represent each U.S. state and territory and design a monument in their honor.

Mic is launching the Black Monuments Project, which will identify one significant black person to represent each U.S. state and territory and design a monument in their honor.

We have collected your submissions and we will unveil the project soon.
