  • This was definitely a must see. My wife and I enjoyed the statue and the Maya A. poem. The statue really made us think about our past.

  • 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.

  • Another monument along the river. It was drawing a large crowd while we were there.
  • The monument is beautiful and really a story of African American history. The Maya Angelou quote captures the meaning of the monument.
