Jalani and the Lock

The African American Quartet

Sculptor Lorenzo Pace won the commission to create the African Burial Ground Memorial sculpture in New York City, which has at its base a replica of the lock that imprisoned his great-grandfather as a slave, passed down through the generations. Pace's beautiful story about the fictional Jalani's chained arrival in the United States tells an uplifting story for children about his ultimate freedom.
