Statue of Alex Haley - Annapolis, Maryland - Photo

This statue of Roots author Alex Haley telling a story to his grandchildren sits on the Annapolis waterfront.

“Haley has stated that the most emotional moment of his life occurred on September 29, 1967, when he stood at the site in Annapolis, Maryland, where his ancestor had arrived from Africa in chains exactly 200 years before.”
