'Captured Africans', St. George's Quay, Lancaster, UK, 16 July, 2006

During the 18th Century, Lancaster was the UK's fourth-largest slaving port. This monument on Damside slipway was unveiled last October to commemorate the ~25,000 Africans transported by Lancastrian ships.
Designed by Kevin Dalton-Johnson, the memorial represents a ship, with a steel mast/prow, sandstone stern and acrylic blocks in the 'hold' indicating cargos in order of value: 'wealth' at the top (not really a cargo... never mind) and 'slaves' at the bottom.
