The election of President Barack Obama has awakened a sense of achievement, purpose and history in America. Sometimes, it is the presentation that brings history into perspective. In ways that are not possible with other mediums, the 389years.com wood carving traces events in African-American history starting with the arrival of the first slave ship all the way through the election of Barack Obama as President.

Beyond printed pages in a history book, the words are carved in a museum quality piece of art that chronicles the triumphs and tragedy of the African-American experience.

In celebration of Black History month, 389years.com is offering this carving for sale. Once available only to museums and exhibitions, this carving is suitable and ready for display at home.
