About Blank Slate

The Blank Slate Monument is the creation of Ghanaian artist Kwame Akoto-Bamfo. Blank Slate is an interactive statue that challenges problematic, false narratives that Confederate memorials promote. Visitors can engage with the installation, sharing their views in real time on the fight for social justice with the intent of seeking a deeper understanding of the Black experience before, during, and after the American Civil War (1861-1865).
