We decided to bike around Dallas and see the city. Freedman's Memorial was top on our list. This is a very small memorial, how it is pretty. I enjoyed the statues and the history about African Americans.

This is definitely a must see site in Dallas. The sculptures evoke so much emotions and walking on the grounds and reading the quotes will put you in a trance. A powerful and sad site.

This is an almost unknown public memorial that I found to be much more than first appearance. I wandered in, while walking near a friends condo. And made note to return. It is a memorial of inspiration and peace, but I found much more significance...More

Beautiful statues, very quiet memorial to a generation of people that were forgotten in Dallas. This monument is very nice. A little background: in the 1930's Hwy 75 was built on top of an African American cemetery, they just plowed over the graves. 5 decades...More
