set at the center of a fountain, and rising nearly 50 feet into the air, this black granite abstract monument is derived from the antelope forms of Bambaran art. The horizontal boat-like feature that supports the sculpture alludes to the "Middle Passage" of the slave trade. The monument is built near the site of a Colonial-era African-American burial ground.
