“Inspiring and educational”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 1, 2013

In a plaza in downtown Oakland that is an easy walk from Jack London Square, is a unique set of sculptures depicting humanitarian activists from around the world. The installation includes four gigantic sculptures, each 25 feet high, surrounded by a set of smaller head-casts of the activists that include their names and an inspirational quote from each. The bronze sculptures were created by Oakland artist Mario Chiodo and was dedicated in May 2013.

This would be a wonderful place for families to visit, particularly those with school-aged children, to learn about great world leaders from all cultures. Some of those depicted include Chief Joseph, Gandhi, Rosa Parks, Mother Theresa, Shirin Ebadi, Oskar Schindler, Nelson Mandela, Harvey Milk, Ruby Bridges, Rigoberta Menchu Tum, Susan B. Anthony, Frederick Douglas, Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King and The Unknown Rebel of Tiananmen Square.

This is a spot not to be missed if you are visiting Oakland.
