"Lift Every Voice and Sing" sculpture was designed as a temporary installation in the 1939 World's Fair, by Harlem Renaissance artist and sculptress Augusta Savage. This piece stood 16 feet tall. Sadly, like many fair displays it was destroyed at the close of the event. Thankfully we have this photo, that the whole world can enjoy it now and forever.
