Boston Weighs Removing Replica Emancipation Memorial Of Lincoln, Freed Slave. Slaves Paid For The Original Memorial.

But a Boston man, to whom it says  “Know your place, because that’s where you belong,” has 7,000 signatures and the mayor’s attention.

“The piece [in Washington of which this is a replica] contained two figures: Lincoln and a newly freed slave, just rising from his knees and grasping a broken chain,” The Washington Post reported.

“This statue, which still stands in Lincoln Park, was erected with contributions from hundreds of former slaves who wanted to pay tribute to the man who had proclaimed their freedom in 1863.”

who has been looking at it from childhood and does not see it that way and wants it some place where he doesn’t see it.
