Video from the State Journal Register:
A two-section cast bronze sculpture was unveiled in downtown Springfield Thursday to serve as a permanent reminder of the Springfield race riot, which occurred almost 101 years ago. More than 100 people gathered in Union Square Park to dedicate the sculpture, created by artist Preston Jackson, during an hour-long ceremony that included speeches, prayer and music.
