Unity Point Park
In this small, triangular park in downtown Mobile, a statue of civil rights leader John LeFlore and former mayor and city commissioner Joseph Langan celebrates their interracial cooperation in the 1950s and '60s to bring about the desegregation of Mobile's city buses, police department and other local institutions. LeFlore, who worked as a postman, helped establish a Mobile chapter of the NAACP in 1925 and was a tireless advocate for civil rights for the next 50 years until his death in 1976. As a legislator in the 1940s, Langan supported voting rights for African-Americans and throughout his public career remained an advocate of equal opportunity for all citizens.
