“Worth a photograph”
Reviewed April 17, 2014

Great location, where it's frequently passed by pedestrians. Well worth a pause to read the plaque and get some pictures.

“Unique reminder of the African American arrival”
Reviewed March 30, 2014

Roots (Kunte Kinte) story began here. Statue allows for children to sit at the lap of its author, at City Dock where KK came on land.

“It's a Memorial”
Reviewed March 18, 2014

I wasn't impressed. It's a memorial for an author, based on a character in his book. What's more to say?

“On the Bay”
Reviewed March 3, 2014

It is worthwhile to read all the brass plaques around the statues, which cannot be missed. A leisurely stroll is all it takes. So get an ice cream cone and learn some history in a very enjoyable setting.
