The Harriet Tubman Memorial, titled “Swing Low,” was sculpted by Alison Saar. Inspired by West African masks, Saar set stylized portraits of “anonymous passengers” of the Underground Railroad in Tubman's skirt. Tubman’s face is solemn, powerful, and determined. The larger-than-life statue is a forceful sight; Tubman appears to be attached to the stone base by a tangle of bronze roots, simultaneously appearing to be held back and in the process of breaking free.
