    The Amistad Memorial In Front Of City Hall.

    The Amistad Memorial Foundation commissioned the Amistad Memorial for the City of New Haven, Connecticut in 1990. It was completed in 1992. The 10 three panel bronze and top of the memorial deals with the three phases of the Amistad Incident. The first side depicts Sengbe Pieh in Africa before he and the other Africans were kidnapped. The backside is a scene of the courtroom trial. The third side is Cinque ready to board the ship, The Gentleman, back to his homeland. The top depicts the body parts of Africans that were thrown or jumped overboard. The Amistad Memorial was officially dedicated September 18, 1992. It was cast and finished in Louisville, Kentucky at Bright Foundry. The architects for the project were Herbert S. Newman & Associates of New Haven, CT.
