Column: Peace Walk statues prefigured social justice trend

Riverside has a series of six statues on the downtown pedestrian mall that were all produced via grassroots efforts from 1995 to 2013 and form a loose series known variously as the Peace Walk or the Civil Rights Walk. They may be unique in the nation outside Washington, D.C., yet they’re not as well-known as they should be. There’s no signage, for one thing. I visit them, alongside the mayor who was there when they were installed and the current mayor who’d like to highlight them. The result is my Sunday column.
