This sculpture is on display at the National Memorial for Peace and Justice opened in Montgomery, Alabama in 2018.

This sculpture depicts a teacher, grandma, and pregnant woman standing in a triangular formation. In addition, King used her knowledge gained through journalism to portray these women as if they were from Alabama in the 1950s. According to King, this women’s sculpture was meant to portray how the women involved were “quiet activists” who, although faced with discrimination, silently made a difference.

King donated the wall with the hope of bringing the community together as well as bringing awareness to political change. King explained, “Oakland is in the midst of an economic renaissance, but so many are left behind.
