About this title


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.About the Author/IllustratorLorenzo Pace is the former director of the Montclair State University Art Galleries in Upper Montclair, New Jersey. He is the sculptor commissioned to create Triumph of the Human Spirit for the African Burial Ground Memorial in Foley Square Park in New York City. He is currently a Professor of Art at the University of Texas Rio Grande Valley.

About the Author:

Dr. Pace is an accomplished and renowned sculptor. Throughout his career, he has worked with a broad range of objects and materials. His sculptures, installations and performance art have received international acclaim and he has exhibited in galleries and museum all over the world. In 1993, Dr. Pace skyrocketed to national attention when he was commissioned to build a monument at New York City's Foley Square paying homage to the African slaves originally buried at that site. In 1991, the remains of over 400 African slaves were excavated during the construction of a federal building in the city's financial district. The City of New York wanted to create a memorial and Dr. Pace was chosen. He worked on this project for nearly ten years. The result is the beautiful 300-ton granite sculpture named "Triumph of the Human Spirit." A duplicate of the lock that Steve Pace passed down to his descendants is buried in this monument. He is presently a professor of art at the University of Texas.
