American history is not so easy to digest sometimes, it's painful and brutal. I believe this memorial and others like it will allow us to remember the past, not relive it nor repeat it. See the link below for details.
I found this video about the Black Madonna and how to read the image as an icon. This is very helpful in my studies. There is definitely more to be discussed about the icon and one day I will have the opportunity to carry on the conversation and research of the iconic image.
