Although never given an official name, a "Mammy memorial" was a proposed memorial to be located in the District of Columbia that would have honored mammys in the United States. Proposed by Congressman Charles Manly Stedman from North Carolina in 1923,[1] and immediately condemned by African Americans and other groups, the monument would have been located along Massachusetts Avenue.[2][3][4]
