Inside Dr. Harrison’s Research

These memorials are a snapshot of monuments that I visited in the capital cities of European countries involved in the transatlantic slave trade and other atrocities.  Where are the monuments on the National Mall in Washington, DC dedicated solely to enslaved Black people who helped build the American colonies, physically and fiscally, brick-by-brick, soul-by-soul for nearly 250 years?

The Memorial to the Abolition of Slavery in Nantes, France
