The REAL Statue of Liberty

The REAL Statue of Liberty

The original statue of Liberty gifted by the French to America was not the stern-faced green Roman looking woman that you see today holding a tablet and a torch. The original and first Statue of Liberty was a Black woman holding the broken shackles of slavery. She was refused on the notion that the black statue would be a constant reminder of the liberty that the slaves earned, from successfully fighting in the American Civil War. The true Black Statue of Liberty remains rejected, forgotten and lost in broken fragments of Black history.

  1. I went and look up more information about the REAL statue of liberty, I never knew about the 1st one being black and even the one in New York having shackles on her feet to represent slavery, good post. We need to know our TRUE history that has been hidden.

  2. WOW, the sh*t they don’t teach us in school. Never knew the original statue of liberty was black. Thanks for the history lesson!!
