Tucson Urban League
The memorial's mission is to educate the Tucson community about the rich history of the Buffalo Soldiers and honoring their contributions and positive impact on defending the nation and settling Southern Arizona and other Western states. The site features a granite monument, interpretive signage, seating, and flagpoles. The memorial was unveiled in May 2021 and was the first of its kind to be voter-approved and funded, in-park, as a project of the 2018 Tucson Delivers: Parks + Connections Bond Program. Additional funding for the memorial was provided through donations made to the GSAAC of the Buffalo Soldiers.
A resident in Tucson's South Park Neighborhood, Quincie Bell (Sims) Douglas was a community activist who spearheaded the Low-Income Free Transportation Services program in 1965, now known as Sun Van. She was also active in the Model Cities program that brought neighborhood centers, sidewalks, streetlights, and food programs to the disadvantaged areas of Tucson. Douglas died in 1986.
