The unveiling happened at a Unity Day L.A. celebration.
The artist behind the beautiful sculpture of Harriet Tubman was 82-year-old Manuelita Brown, who completed the statue in less than three months.
Brown said she was inspired to to sculpt Harriet Tubman knowing she was not only a soldier but also an abolitionist who fought for women’s right to vote and for Black people’s right to vote.
