The Healing Of Africa

I have just come across this brilliant site.

The Healing Of Africa
At Long Last…
Two hundred years after the abolition of the transatlantic slave trade, an unprecedented monument project is finally being launched.
It is official…

The sculptor, Donald Brown, is creating a millennium monument. Seven replicas of Brown's 15ft bronze Millennium Monuments will be placed in seven countries around the world in preparation for the largest simultaneous media unveiling ceremony in history.

You can view a video about his work on the same site.

You can read interviews with Black artists about their responses to the Bicentenary of the end of the Transatlantic trade on my website,
