Manchester Slave Docks by Auz Miles, Limited Release Fine Art Print
Located at Ancarrow’s Landing in Richmond, the Manchester Slave Docks sit quietly along the rutted banks of the James amid a tangled forest of concrete pillars, trees, and history hidden in plain sight. As part of the Richmond Slave Trail, the docks serve as a place to reflect on the journey many slaves walked – while chained at the neck and legs – from the river’s port to slave jails in the city. Today, the docks are part of an effort to pull back the covers of a dark history as part of Richmond’s responsibility to understand the authentic story and to tell the truth. Austin "Auz" Miles, a celebrated Richmond artist known for creating visual conversations that ignite understanding and inspire community healing, painted the Manchester Slave Docks for our True Places series. A portion of the proceeds from Auz’s piece will benefit Keep Virginia Cozy, a nonprofit working to increase diversity and inclusion in our public lands while leaving outdoor places better than we find them.
