  1. There are a couple of brilliant sculptures in Lincoln Park, Washington DC. One is a rather dated statue of Abraham Lincoln freeing a young African-American boy. For its time, it was a revolutionary work. Taken out of context, some might find the image prosaic, belittling, or even insulting. For me, it is what it is- a work of art, superbly executed. The other statue is of Mary McLeod Bethune, She was an American educator, stateswoman, philanthropist, humanitarian, and civil rights activist best known for starting a private school for African-American students in Daytona Beach, Florida and co-founding UNCF on April 25, 1944 with William Trent and Frederick D. Patterson. (Attribution: Wikipedia)
