Racist Dogs Sculpture

Great history lesson into the civil rights movement. Need to get there before 3:30 so you can get the audio walking tour of the sculptures in the park. Audio tour needs to be returned by 4:30. If you miss the audio tour, look for a guy named Kenny in the park. He claimed to be 14 at the time of the civil rights and involved in the children marches. He will give you a personal tour. He is just one of the pan handlers we ran into at the park.
