The Legacy Project
The GW Jackson Multicultural Society Legacy Park is envisioned as a catalyst; a vibrant force in creating community collaborations and capturing the rich history and legacy of the African American experience, a vital part of the experience of all Americans. It will be a true sense of place for the Society's homage to its namesake, George Washington Jackson, the first African American school principal in Corsicana, Texas.
Set on the original homesite of Mr. Jackson, an open park centered by a bronze sculpture of Jackson in a familiar place, seated with an outstretched hand guiding students and families, will be a setting both to honor the history of the place as a well as invite new reasons to make history.
With the help of donations and fundraising, we are hopeful that Legacy Park can be
open to the public in 2021.
