The final phase will create an African American Commemorative Plaza, a public gathering place that will bring together the history of the school and contributions of the community. The space, designed by Butzer Architects and Urbanism, features public art structures shaped like books and other nods toward education. It will also include a covered space for programs and concerts, areas for seniors to linger, children to play, homage to notable and unsung heroes from the community, and a direct path to the historic Booker T. Washington Park.
