  • Possibly the most significant location in the city for all of African decent. The story revealed through the study and analysis of this helps to create a clearer picture of the African presence in all of the post colonial New World. And it is powerful to be able have a place to visit and connect with the strong resilient and not forgotten predecessors of the struggle we so often remark about.
  • Beautiful monument and the small museum was very well done. We stumbled upon this with our young kids and felt like it was properly respectful, emotional, but not upsetting to them. Movie sparked a lot of conversations between us all. Highly recommend.
