Re: “A whole lot of shacklin' goin' on

Art can certainly invite different interpretations. Community Ventures would like to share the Art on the Streets juror's thoughts on why the courthouse is an appropriate setting for the sculpture, Journey.

" This powerful and moving work of art exposes a tragic injustice in American history and symbolizes the great suffering of African American people. Laws abolishing slavery and guaranteeing civil rights eventually were enacted by our legislative branch and are administered through our judicial system. The role of the courts is to ensure and uphold equal justice under law. The title of this sculpture, Journey, speaks to both the grievous journey of African people aboard slave ships and to our nation’s continuing journey toward justice. From my perspective, the sculpture and its placement near the courthouse are reminders that the journey goes on and that we must never stop working for justice."

Jan Schall, Ph.D.
