In the 50s, these three gentlemen figured that there should be a better relationship amongst the religious communities in Fresno, and so they did something about it by joining forces to present issues common to all and how each religion might look at them. The radio show was aired weekly, I believe on Sundays, so as to engage the community in a dialogue about issues often not discussed, such as racism, poverty, divorce, and others that were more taboo back in that era.
Clement Renzi made this sculpture. He also did others for the downtown Fresno Fulton Mall. Mr. Renzi was friends with the three clergymen, and felt that they should be commemorated for their early work in relational understanding. I was heading to a nearby business to purchase gift certificates for a friend who is retiring in another week when I caught a glimpse of the sculpture. I had forgotten it was here, and so decided I needed to take a few pictures.
