Kunta Kinte–Alex Haley Memorial Review

A series of plaques along the waterfront recounting the story of African-Americans in Maryland lead to a sculpture group depicting Alex Haley, famed author of Roots, reading to a group of children. On the other side of the street, a three-sided obelisk and plaque commemorates the 1767 arrival of the African slave immortalized in Haley's novel. This is a lovely place that may inspire you to reflect on African-American history and the importance of family, reading, and passing oral history from one generation to another.
