The International
Civil Rights Walk of Fame

Walk of Fame Plaque The International Civil Rights Walk of Fame was created in 2004 to give recognition to those courageous soldiers of justice who sacrificed and struggled to make equality a reality for all. This extraordinary display has enhanced the historic value of the geographic area, enriched the cultural heritage, and augmented tourist attractions in the city of Atlanta. Along the promenade leading to the National Park Service's Visitor Center is a parade of embedded 2'x 2' granite markers featuring the actual footstep impressions of civil and human rights icons, such as Rosa Parks, Archbishop Emeritus Desmond Tutu, Ambassador Andrew Young, US Congressman John Lewis, and others. Inductions occur annually in partnership with the Trumpet Awards Foundation, Inc. founded by Xernona Clayton, who also is the Executive Producer of the renowned Trumpet Awards.
