Manchester Slave Docks by Auz Miles, Limited Release Fine Art Print

$35.00 On Sale

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.
