Nice sculptures in an open, accessible location, with metal plaques containing quotes on the pedestrian areas around it.
Just takes 5 min to read the plaques and see the sculpture. While walking around the pier and water district, you will come upon this sculpture of Alex Haley reading to a group of children. It is well done and the expressions on the faces are great.
Disregard the negative reviews this is a lovely spot to sit and enjoy people watching, as well as to appreciate lovely sculpture. Young people don't know Alex Haley but he was a great travel writer, most known for the novel ROOTS - a novel loosely based on his family lore, later made into a mini series in the 70's. If... 更多
It's a nice statue and artistic display of the historic figure. It has weathered well and provides a nice amount of information, not too overwhelming, but interesting.
Make sure to walk along the waterway, his story is told on each pillar as if reading a book. One page at a time. Good photo ops and great pet friendly walk.
take the time read the signs, take time to take in the history. Look around see the water or look up the hill at church circle and watch the activities going on. normally there are someone playing music or art work going on,
This sculpture is at the end of downtown Annapolis, right at the harbor. It is located in a small paved clearing with seating around it. Even if you're not tnierested in the sculpture, the view is spectacular!
We were visiting the waterfront area and saw this grouping of beautiful statues and stopped to see the artistry and read the historical statements. The area is very small but there is sufficient area to rest for a while and reflect on the historical perspectives.
In a way this memorial seems out of place where it is, most people just walk by and never glance at it, it is right in the pedestrian walk way. There are several places to sit in this area and you could take the time to enjoy and relax and reflect on history.
A place on a bench to relax and reflect. It is a small but powerful reminder allowing you to think and feel good. Not every place does that. We found it by accident on the square at City Dock. Lucky us
