the United Nations Visitors Plaza in New York
This memorial was made to depict the global scale of the triangular slave trade, illustrate the extreme conditions under which millions of African people were transported during the Middle Passage and be a place where visitors can honor the memory of the millions of souls who were lost. Rodney Leon was the Architect and designer of the memorial.
The mural is on Donnelley Youth Center and was originally introduced along with plans for a sculpture garden. The original mural was painted by Mitchell Caton and Calvin Jones in 1979 and was restored by Bernard Williams in 1993.
