You're bound to see this if walking around the city docks area. It's good for a quick stop and is often crowded with onlookers.

An amazing tribute. Reminds you to be grateful to all who suffered and sacrificed for the rest of us to be free.
Worth the Viewing

Located on the dockside in town, there are beautiful statutes of Alex Haley reading to children. Lovely.
A fitting tribute to the Old African and Alex Haley

Alex Haley's legacy is one of in stilling genealogy and ancestry in generations of Blacks causing Resurgence in knowing from whence many Black families came. From Roots, to Queen, to Mama Flora's family, Haley's works are captivating, based on his understanding of oral history passed through the family, going back to the Old African (Kunta Kinte). The memorial begins with a marker directly beside the City Market. Across the street is the statue of Alex Haley, then several plaques with quotes from Roots. The statue and plaques are immediately adjacent to the water . This is just not a black history site....it is an American history site.
