It is a series of life size statues on the harbor walkway, depicting children listening to stories. Nice picture spot.

i dont think I would go out of my way to see this attraction. But you will walk right by it if your by the water front.
Statue in a traffic circle. (He deserves better.)

Being centrally located means it is surrounded by car traffic, restaurants and gift stores. That gives it great visibility but is not conducive to reflecting on his life or the meaning of Roots. Luckily, several museums in town do provide that.
A hidden and unique bit of Annapolis history

This memorial commemorates the little-known fact that Annapolis was once a center of the slave trade. The memorial is a striking sculpture of the author Alex Haley, who wrote ROOTS, telling children about his ancestor, Kunta Kinte, who was brought to America through the harbor. It's a quiet but powerful memorial.
A tribute to Alex Haley for the film "Roots".

This memorial is at the City Dock in Annapolis near Ego Alley. The statue recognizes the roll that Annapolis played in the history of America for the sale of slaves on the city dock, and Alex Haley's telling the story of Kunta Kinte in the film series "Roots"..
