  • Seeing pictures in a textbook pales to seeing the statues of chained blacks come to life. The artist's visual representation of lynchings is also thought-provoking with underlying meanings that you will feel as you observe and think about this depiction. You may not agree with all the explanations but the history of slaves/blacks in this land and the systemic and continued suppression of their humanity and thus equality is real. A recommended must-see.
  • I truly appreciate the time and efforts put into making this 0lace of history come alive for old and young. I came away with so many ideas to help the young children I interact with understand the importance of reading and researching our missing History from the shelves today. I only hope that I can arrange a trip for them to visit one day. An awesome place to visit if you are ready for truth, not bitterness or hate but truth, because it did happen and we can't change the past. We can work together to live in truth moving forward. Hope you will consider visiting with an open heart and mind to do something positive for humanity.
