WORCESTER – On Thursday, Dec. 7, the City of Worcester will host the unveiling of the Citizens of Color World War II Honor Roll at the World War I Memorial at Lincoln Square.

The unveiling will be preceded by a speaking program at 1 PM.

The monument was taken down roughly 50 years ago when I-290 was being constructed across Worcester. Until now, it hasn’t been replaced. The original honor roll (pictured above) lists the names of 145 citizens of color,

The effort to replace the monument has been lead over the past few years by community leader and recent District 1 City Council candidate Bill Coleman.
