The African American Cultural Garden Task force commissioned architect, W. Daniel Bickerstaff II of Ubiquitous Design, Ltd. to design the garden. Through extensive research the design conceptually represents and celebrates The African American Experience via it's PAST, PRESENT AND FUTURE :
■Past Pavilion: 'Translates the experience of the initial aspects of the "Slave Trade" through the reinterpretation of the dungeons, corridors and ultimate 'Doorway of No Return" of the castles located along the western coast of Africa.'
■Present Pavilion: 'Evokes the sense of 'Emergence'; the form emerges from the site echoing our emergence as a people in this country despite the myriad of challenges and obstacles.
■Future Pavilion: 'Addresses the need for reflection and hope through the reintroduction of a fountain and small reflecting pool contrasting and paying homage to the fountain in the Past Pavilion and its symbolism.

Music: Miles Davis- "Prayer"
