Description:
A Register of Civil Rights Event Locations, Memorials and Historical Places from around the world.
Expanded Description:

Civil Rights Memorials


Civil and political rights are a class of rights and freedoms that protect individuals from unwarranted action by government and private organizations and individuals and ensure one's ability to participate in the civil and political life of the state without discrimination or repression. The struggle for Equality has left a rich history of lessons learned. We welcome any Civil Rights Memorial fram any corner of the world.

Some of the locations associated with the Civil rights movement in the United States, such as Birmingham, Alabama's 16th Street Baptist Church and the Edmund Pettus Bridge in Selma, Alabama are well known while other locations still exist but have long been forgotten. Let's preserve the history of these locations by finding and logging them as waymarks so that future generations can know of these historic locations and benefit from the lessons learned at these locations.

Here is a partial list of some of the Civil Rights Movements from around the world.

  • Civil rights movement in Northern Ireland
  • Canada's Quiet Revolution
  • Civil rights movement in the United States
  • The struggle to end apartheid in South Africa
  • Chicano Movement
  • American Indian Movement
  • Gender equity issues
  • LGBT rights and gay liberation



Effective June 5, 2010: We will no longer accept memorial to units that fought in the Civil War. While the actions of units such at the 54th Regiment distinguished the black soldiers as loyal, courageous members of the Union Army and further their cause for emancipation, there are already several categories that memorials to Civil War units and individuals fall under.

Effective May 1, 2011: We will no longer accept memorial to the fight against communism. These memorial should be posted to the "Monuments of the Eastern Freedomfights " catagory.

Effective November 17, 2013: Class equality has been added as a Civil Rights type. This change was made to include the expansion of voting rights to working class people and other such groups that were denied the right to vote based on their socio-economic status. Class is a socio-economic term and should not be confused with race.

    As a guideline, the following is a suggested naming scheme for listings in this category: Freedom Corner - Jackson, MS.

  5. In the Detailed Description provide an explanation of why the site is important in the history of Civil Rights including any pertinent dates. Please document your sources.

A few suggestions

  • First and foremost, have fun and enjoy yourself.

  • Take lots of pictures from more than one location around the monument. It is better to have extra pictures and not need them, then to get home and find out you got a great picture of the back of some ones head. Hopefully you are using a digital camera and all those extra pictures are cheap insurance.

  • Try and take some close up shots. A good picture of any text on the monument will help you write your description.

  • Look around you, there may be another waymark right under your feet.
