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. Tate, a former slave, was among the five wealthiest African Americans living in Atlanta — amassing his fortune within ten years of his arrival on Auburn Avenue in the 1860s.
