Time Out says

For one day only, Ghanian Artist Kwame Akoto-Bamfo unveils his sculpture “Blank Slate: Hope for a New America” in front of the newly-reopened DuSable Museum of African American History—just in time for Juneteenth. Created as a counterpoint to the more than 1,500 Confederate monuments and symbols still on display in public spaces across the United States, the statue is in the midst of a tour across America. Visitors can view it between noon and 5pm on Saturday, interacting with the titular "blank slate" that's incorporated in the installation.
