Random But Awesome!

Randomly came across this information this morning, The city of New York constructed a memorial to the African Burial Ground in Foley Square.   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. Random but if your ever in New York take a gander.
