Trip Advisor Very moving to see families gathered around it
Sep 17, 2014 by: janebeard from Silver Spring MD
The quotes from Roots are lovely, and the statues themselves are vivid and alive. But what I love most is that it's installed in a way that encourages you to interact with them...and people DO. It's very moving to see little human people gathered in a pile among the statue kids. Beautiful.

Trip Advisor Must see

This is really cool, please don't miss it, just follow the crowds to the waterfront area and check out the statue of Alex Haley, the famous author of Roots. But, don't stop there, follow the story of African slaves, by reading the plaques that line the sidewalk. Well done!

Trip Advisor A Fitting Tribute
Sep 08, 2014 by: jeffl499 from Alexandria, VA
Highly visible reminder of the darker side of American history, this memorial should not be missed when touring Annapolis. With a focus on the author Alex Haley, its quotations bring back the story the formed the basis of his widely read book about the life of African Americans deeply embedded into the American fabric. Worth the time for reading and reflection while visiting the harbor.

A reminder of the past, not to be forgotten. A feature to spend time contemplating. A prominent but discrete memorial on the harbour front with a few facts from history.

Trip Advisor I read everything, I loved it.

Just happened upon this during a run. Loved the quotes, loved the view and the history. Right in the art of town by Market Square, you can easily see this when in Annapolis.
