Preston Jackson has proposed a monumental structure, approximately five feet by three feet by ten feet in height of quality cast bronze, presented in a detailed figural style. He intends to utilize two-and three-dimensional figurative rendering methods and heavy perspective principles to represent the freedom suits and the courageous individuals involved in them. Each angle of the sculpture is a pictorial lesson on the lawsuits and the times during which they were brought. The sketches accompanying this narrative are rough depictions of the concepts that he proposes. They are, of course, subject to discussion and agreement.
