“The Mission of the Colfax Memorial Organization is to fund, create and dedicate a fitting memorial for the men who fought for freedom that fateful day. Funds raised over the cost of the memorial will be used to provide scholarships for African American students in Colfax who desire to attend college and establish meaningful careers.”
