“The Peace Be Still” statue was erected in Birmingham, Alabama to honor the Palm Sunday March held by Rev. N. H. Smith, Rev. John T. Porter, and Rev. A. D. King to support Rev. Martin Luther King, Jr., Rev. Fred Shuttlesworth and Rev. Ralph Abernathy when they were jailed for protesting segregation in Birmingham. The pastors led the march from St. Paul United Methodist Church down to 6th Avenue North.
