It is worthwhile to read all the brass plaques around the statues, which cannot be missed. A leisurely stroll is all it takes. So get an ice cream cone and learn some history in a very enjoyable setting.

Impressive to imagine slaves arriving there 300 years ago like Kunta Kinte. Now his descendent is encouraging youngsters to read
Sculptures are very nice.

The Kunta Kinte sculptures as located at City Dock. They are always filled with kids having their pictures taken.

Anybody that grew up in the 70s must remember Roots. This is where the African came in on the slave ship. Wow!! When I got to my daughter's home in Durham, NH, We watched all of the episodes, A spiritual experience!
A must stop near the harbor

Amidst so much fabulous history in the Annapolis and DC area, it would be very easy to overlook this darker part of the nation's history. Beyond the reality that so many of the early Maryland pioneers were dependent on slave labor -- in the late 1600s and early 1700s found in the form of Irish orphans and the like -- to clear land and make it tillable, the location of this memorial is compelling. A busy harbor of yesterday, replete with merchant ships and human cargo appears before ones eyes, rolling across the screen of contemporary Annapolis. It is altogether possible to time travel in a few teachable moments here. Easy hit, can't beat the price: free.
