CBS42's Sherri Jackson has been covering the monument being built to mark triumph over one of the most difficult days in the city's history – the bombing of the 16th Street Baptist Church.
CBS42's exclusive coverage has documented artist Elizabeth MacQueen's sculpture to honor the four girls killed in the church bombing.
MacQueen's work will bring a fitting memorial to the lives of Addie Mae Collins, Carole Robertson, Cynthia Wesley and Denise McNair for the first time since their deaths.
A life-sized sculpture will sit at the entrance to Kelly Ingram Park.
MacQueen says her goal is for those who visit the sculpture to walk away with a sense of hope.
The sculpture is set to be unveiled September 15, 2013.
