American History-The Middle Passage is a sculpture I have dedicated to the kidnapped Africans that were shipped to the Americas to be sold into slavery.

It is made from litter, plastic debris and reclaimed mahogany lumber. There are approximately 3500 handmade plastic beads made from the aforementioned plastic debris.
