Montgomery Alabama Legacy Museum (Pantoum)

Twenty-four thousand enslaved, eighteen-
hundred. Waiting for God's bravery.
You enter through a security screen.
Montgomery, a city shaped by slavery.

Hundreds waiting for God's bravery.
I hear my daughter but I can't find her.
Montgomery, a city shaped by slavery.
Have you seen our mother?

I hear my daughter but I can't find her.
You enter through a security screen.
Have you seen our mother?
Twenty-four thousand enslaved, eighteen.
