I this was very nice and interesting. You need to walk and read all the quotes that go down the sides of the water front. Everyone who see the statues stops and looks. So it... read more

This is an informative memorial along the port in Annapolis that could be easily overlooked when crowded. Commemorates a major part of US history (and one to be ashamed of). Peaceful spot. Benches for watching ships come and go as well as people watching. Bit of shade on hot, sunny days. Terrific ice cream shops near by.

I this was very nice and interesting. You need to walk and read all the quotes that go down the sides of the water front. Everyone who see the statues stops and looks. So it doesn't s a great idea and a way to educate many.

This is at the top of Ego Alley, on the city dock. It is very informative and, if you have the time to read the plaques, you'll learn a lot!

It was a nice display. I just wish there was more to it. It was in a nice spot by the water, but I barely noticed it.

A group of lifelike bronze sculptures at the foot of the City Dock reminds visitors of Annapolis's slave-dealing and slave-holding past. It's pretty unobtrusive, but worth a look. The past is worth remembering, lest we repeat it.

Be sure to come visit this statue, and make sure to read the plaque as well. This statue is well situated close to the docks, making a great scene for photos as well.

It is right at the centre of town by the Market Place. Gives one pause to think about the history of this nation, especially in light of the most recent events related to discrimination. Sobering

But really only worth a few minutes of gander if it is the same memorial we saw on the pier. Close to the water...this is the Chesapeake bay. Great view. Water seems overly traveled.

This is a statue and a set of plaques......each plaque had a message. I found it quite moving. It is located in a pretty area near the water.

Almost missed this when I was in the harbor area, as I was walking on the other side - but definitely well worth seeing!
