A very well done artwork with a beautiful message. This is a very fun walkable area so make sure to take it all in!

This statue in the middle of Downtown Annapolis portrays the statute of Kunta Kinte who helped teach the young people how to read. Worth a look.

On the Saturday we were in town, there was a local Kunta Kinta festival going on at the dock. Several dozen popups, food, vendors, music... We strolled around for about 15 minutes.
