Description
Sculptor Lorenzo Pace won the commission to create the African Burial Ground Memorial sculpture in New York City, which has at its base a replica of the lock that imprisoned his great-grandfather as a slave, passed down through the generations. Pace's beautiful story about the fictional Jalani's chained arrival in the United States tells an uplifting story for children about his ultimate freedom.
