In 1968 Clayborn Temple became the headquarters for the Memphis Sanitation Workers Strike. Starting in February, 1968, nearly 1000 sanitation workers marched twice daily from the church to City Hall carrying signs declaring “I AM A MAN.”

Very wonderful Plaza with a time line around I AM A MAN sculpture. It was paid for by Abe Plough. (1892-1984), a Jewish philanthropist who did not want it known that he paid for it and the salaries of many striking sanitation workers and many others. A righteous man.

Also nearby is Mason Temple Church of God in Christ at 930 Mason Street. MLK delivered his prophetic "Mountaintop" speech there on April 3, 1968--the night before his assassination.

DO take the time to read each brick about the sanitation workers strike. Such an important part of our history. This place was AMAZING and so well done. The Plaza actually has a dedication to Abe Plough. I had NO IDEA who he was until I went here. Abe made an anonymous donation and funded the raises of all the sanitation workers in the city to end the strike. It wasn't revealed until after his death of this donation. Wow. He deserves a special place in heaven for his generosity and kindness. A definitely must see. This memorial is so well done.

This is the place where the refuse collectors and their supporters gathered each day to march to City Hall with their demands for better pay, greater safety on the job and recognition of their union in March 1968. This is where the I am a Man posters were made and carried proudly by the marchers. The I am a Man sculpture is outside. The Church is barely still a church, but is now being revived once more with extensive renovations. It is a piece of living history in the civil rights struggle and worth a visit if only for that reason.

This is worth a quick stop to see the I Am a Man monument. If possible, stop by the National Civil Rights Museum beforehand to get a better understanding of the history of the sanitation workers strike and what also lead to the death of Martin Luther King Jr.

The Park is clean however there is not a lot of parking. If there is not an event going on at the arena, you can park quickly across the street in the parking lot and walk over (it is only about a 2 minute walk)
