Memorial for the Slaves (Kumbukumbu Ya Historia Ya Watumwa) (Stone Town, Zanzibar, Tanzania)
Transatlantic Slave Trade
Stone Town, Zanzibar
Five nude torsos of enslaved Africans emerge from stone pillars, whose rough and pebbled texture resemble the stones that fill the concrete pit that surround them. The five cast concrete figures, all but one of whom are chained around the neck, are located on the site of the last slave market in Africa.
