Memorial Drive is a long road that travels from Stone Mountain to Downtown Atlanta in the U.S. state of Georgia. In 2000, a part of Memorial Drive was named "Cynthia McKinney Parkway,"[1] but the naming has come under scrutiny since her primary defeat in 2006.[2]

The Tupac Shakur memorial statue is located on this road.[3]
