The African-American Monument on the Capitol Grounds of the S.C. Statehouse

These photos of the African-American Monument were taken in 2001. See how many of the events and people that you can recognize from the pictures. The pictures start with one of the entire monument and then move from left to right in historical order of events.

A separate entry has been written about the construction of the African-American Monument that was dedicated on the capitol grounds of the South Carolina statehouse in 2001. It includes more pictures!
