To begin with, why not place a memorial to Thurgood Marshall in front of the State House? He was everything that Taney was not. So many possibilities exist. Dr. King needs a statue in Maryland. A boulevard is fine, but a statue brings him to us so much better. Baltimore was a center of early civil rights struggles, but we do not recognize those who made it so.
It seems very fitting to have a monument to African American women whose daily struggles should be honored. And there should be a memorial to all of the decent Black victims of violence in our state regardless of their killers. We need to remember them. It is a good time to redirect our effort.
