Request for Qualifications and Proposal

The Natchez U.S. Colored Troops Monument Committee is pleased to announce the release of a Request for Qualifications and Proposal (RFQP) from qualified firms and individuals to work with the committee and local community for conceptual and schematic designs for a monument in Natchez, Miss. This monument will honor the more than 3,000 African American men who served with six regiments at Fort McPherson in Natchez, Miss., as well those who served in the Navy who were born in Natchez.


We have made great progress since we started this project in 2021. We are now ready to release the RFQP seeking discovery, conceptual design and schematic design that will guide future phases of the project.
