Texas African American History Memorial

The African American History Memorial in Austin, TX is on the Capitol grounds and depicts the history of African Americans in the State of Texas. It’s a large installation that includes many striking faces.

For me, the expressions were especially moving: intelligent faces that show personality, wisdom, beauty–I wanted to know these people and learn from them.

I spent a long time looking at each face, taking pictures of many individuals.

The artist, Ed Dwight, created a stunning installation that is worthy of such a place of honor. Visiting this piece will be high on my list for my next trip to Austin.

One of the most beautiful and meaningful bronze installations I have seen.
