'Freedom Mall' Envisioned
Not available online
Title'Freedom Mall' Envisioned
AbstractEd Hogan, Kansas City artist, has created four statues that "tell the stories of many slaves who once sought freedom across the Missouri River." The statues are part of the Kansas City River Trails Inc. program to provide art along the trails. The statues are being considered for placement in what might be called Freedom Mall "under the Lewis & Clark Viaduct where people could come to learn about history and slavery" and where many slaves crossed the river to freedom. A new community task force is being assembled to make decisions regarding their placement.
