    You are going by History. I do believe she was intended to be black why else is there chains around her ankles. No other race in the U.S. were brought here in chains. Check out Hidden Colors.

      Tracy,
      You could very well be correct. This could just be another case of an artist being overruled by those that hold the purse strings. This happens all the time, especially when you’re dealing with a very public monumental artwork. The original sketches were indeed of a black Egyptian woman, which may speak of Barthioldi’s original intent. The fact that the artist Bartholdi and Edouard de Laboula, who proposed the whole idea were active abolitionists is another strong piece of evidence, but not conclusive proof. In other words you may be right, but we’ll probably never know for sure.

    I think it is evil and a digracefor americas leaders who claim they care about the human struggle of the negros plight I say negros now because that was the description than at the same time I am aware of the african amerucans true classsification and identification hebrew nation of people just as america do not want blacks to rise and know our strength and contribution why because the spot light is on us we are the true strength of this country and the black woman is the back bone the true liberty the courage and strength the spirit of endurance the black mame breast was used to feed the white womans babies the white woman husbands used the black woman to warm his bed and rape her womb to his liken her children was tornfrom her belly and sold to the highestvbidder her husband was also taken from her breast and lefted to fin for her self as she is today all the big time sport heroes runs to the carcation women to receive all of there hard owned cash and shared with every one but the black woman why because you glorify the white woman put them on a pesatal as u put the european white woman as as a symbol of liberty with chains on her feet did america did not know that this dishonor of a lie would not come back and haunt america all of the bones and and dead bodies that have been buried underneath wallstreet In new york the thousands of slaves that was murdered slaughtered spirits not rise to deal with this very issue how dare u try to give the glory of liberty to a white woman with shackles on her feet

      Tracy, I totally agree with you regarding the logic of the chains, but I just wanted to say that they are not the only ones brought over in chains.

          Irish and Scottish were brought in on chains and used as indentured slaves.. They were also cheaper slaves than the African slaves and were killed more often!

            You really want to do this? You really want to debate who has suffered more in this country? Gimme a break.

            Irish and the Scottish were indentured SERVANTS not slave. In chattel slavery not only were the people considered property, their children were too. The Scottish and the Irish were on CONTRACT and once that contract was up. They were free to go. Some continued to work for those people for the lack of work and were getting paid for their work as well. Also, the Scottish and the Irish came to the U.S willingly when the US opened its borders to foreigners. Even after black slaves were “freed” they were only considered 3/5 human. The Scottish and the Irish didnt have to worry about the same thing black slaves did.

    The Shackle(chain) on her foot I believe is proof enough for anyone with eyes and common sense!!!!!!

      Amen to that!! Sometimes A Degree can halt us at the threshold of power but common sense moves us on up to limitless knowledge.

    Remember, Mr Owens that that although Jesus was of color, Europeans tell the world he is white, when he is a Jewish man, whatever the original Jews looked like, they were much darker, but they present him to us as Caucasian with blue eyes. If the statue above was presented to show and end of slavery, why create a white woman with shackles? They were not slaves in america; . it seems correct to assume the chains at the feet of the statue of liberty means END THE INSTITUTION OF SLAVERY IN AMERICA, WE THE PEOPLE OF FRANCE URGE YOU TO DO SO, America accepted that statue and that means they should have not taken on the practice of people as property. BUT THEY DID AND WANT TO BRING IT BACK.

    I am the author of the Stone Rejected, my name is Delena Spinelli. I applude all of you because you are that chosen generation that will not be quieted or go along quietly. Don’t you see that is what God Yah has been waiting for the birth of a new nation, who fears no one but God Himself. America, even though she was prophesied in Revelations to be destroyed she being Babylon could have taken a different route and possibly have been spared. But like the statue, she exchanged truth and virtue for hatred and wickedness. The current statue represents the pagan fertility goddess who has sex with all. That’s why in the bible Babylon is called the mother of prostitutes and perverts. She will soon be destroyed. It also says “come out of her my people”. So you had better be looking for a good place to live outside America.

    I believe there was a 60 Minutes special on the Statue of Liberty. There was an interesting part about the chain. There was a large section of chain that was removed from the statue and is actually stored in the museum at the base of the statue. It’s not in the main museum but in a rear area in a glass enclosure.

    Well all this has been very enlightening. Our history has certainly been suppressed. So much to the point that I’m proposing a bill to submit to congress God’s, those who withhold the truth will be punished. WE THE BLACK MAN are direct descendants of the black jews(IGBO TRIBE) that were separated from Moses at the parting of the Red Sea. It is important for you to know that we are in a time of restoration, RIGHT NOW! Mark my word, everyone, even whites will claim to be black shortly, that we are all as one even after they have slaved us and defiled us. It won’t work! The bible says they must restore 7 fold. I LOVE IT!!!! Praise God.

    Forgive misspellings. God says those who have lied and withheld the truth will be punished. Romans 1:18

    The statue of Liberty was never intended on being an African Woman. The shackles on her feet are not proof of that. Bartholdy created the statue with the face of his mother in mind. And his mother was a white woman. This article shows that this whole rumor was a giant hoax that was floating around the internet for years.

      Liberty is LITERALLY defined as the state of being free within society from oppressive restrictions imposed by authority on one’s way of life, behavior, or political views. Also, if you look up the history behind the statue of liberty, it was given to the US by the French to symbolize their neutrality in war and the U.S. “abolishment” of slavery. The man that built it was anti-slavery. 1865 – 1886. In 1865, a French political intellectual and anti-slavery activist named Edouard de Laboulaye proposed that a statue representing liberty be built for the United States. This monument would honor the United States’ centennial of independence and the friendship with France.
