Karen Rudd, the Manager of Norfolk Arts, which oversees the development of public artworks in the city, said the Massive Resistance project was launched during the 50th anniversary of the role of the living members of the Norfolk 17 during a series of events in 2009.

Rudd said that city leaders reviewed a variety of concepts for the monument and venues for it.

The location at Charlotte and Granby Street was a strategic historic and civic move.
