African American Veterans Memorial
Kansas City, KS

From Concept to Reality

Created by: Jocelyn Ball-Edson At the north end of the site a polished granite monument commemorates the service of black veterans throughout United States history. At the south end of the site, above the retaining wall of The Terrace, a large U.S. flag flies atop a 50’ pole set in a granite base. A wide sidewalk down the center of the block links the monument to the flagpole and is lined with benches and ornamental lights. This plaza space is flanked on each side with a row of oak trees, the U.S. national tree. Located at: 12th Street & The Paseo
