Let foot traffic determine monument location
If the objective of the Emancipation Proclamation Monument is to obtain the maximum exposure for its significance to the African-American community in Fluvanna County, then I believe the monument should be placed at the most frequented public space by African-Americans in our county. Placing the monument in a location where few African-Americans frequent would lessen its historical significance to our population. I’m sure the Fluvanna Board of Supervisors or county government can tell us where African-Americans have the most foot traffic to county public buildings and therefore the best place for the monument.
