The African American Garden

“History and design concept: The garden was established after a task force of prominent business and civic leaders and community activists was organized by Mayor Frank G. Jackson. They identified the garden’s mission as promoting education and interest in African American culture and heritage and a spirit of friendship among all people.

The design by architect Danial W. Bickerstaff conveys the past, present and future of the African American community.”
