Commemorative relief sculptures located along Auburn Avenue pay tribute to the lives and contributions of four community leaders: James Tate, Carrie Steele Logan, Alice Dugged Cary, and Wesley Chapel Redding. Each sculpture mounted on a granite pylon is a bas relief portrait of the honored individual and includes text about his or her contribution to the development of the “Sweet Auburn” community. Cary was an educator and school principal who fought to open the first public library for African Americans in Atlanta, and later became its first librarian.
