African-American Monument reviews
This is a beautiful statue of a family of four African-Americans, with the chains of slavery at their feet. There is an inscription, written by Maya Angelou, at its base. more »
This is a small and simple yet very impressive statue located on River Street, it's hard to miss. A nice piece of art. more »
I've never seen a statue that captures the plight of black Americans quite like this. A family: the father, wife, and kids. The fear and uncertainty on their faces. Haven't found something like it anywhere else so far.
It's a statue that's just been upgraded.
