PRINCE HALL MEMORIAL (2011)

Cambridge, MA

The mirror polished inner face of the African quarried stones present quotes from Prince Hall’s own writings. The words “Your friend & brother Prince Hall” are etched in handwriting based on Prince Hall’s own script. The outward-facing matte finish surfaces of the stones present an overview of the biography of Prince Hall, surrounded by quotes from African-American leaders of the Revolutionary period. The curves at the tops of the stones are suggestive of those found on many gravestones from the period .Granite. Budget :$100,000.
