Project Overview

Artist Vinnie Bagwellʼs vision for the Enslaved Africansʼ Rain Garden is focused on remembering the lives, the feelings, and the legacy of the men, women, and children who were stripped of their human rights. Her candid images of daily life, rendered in the vernacular of bronze sculpture, are a testament to the resounding triumph of the human spirit. Working with community members, our mission is to fully honor, dignify and restore the humanity of enslaved Africans in America by transforming them from objects to subjects via art in a public place in Yonkers, New York.
