    A Reflection at Lake Erie & the Niagara River – Black History Month 2022

    On January 31, I had the honor of taking part in the ribbon cutting ceremony for the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Buffalo District’s seawall project at Ralph C. Wilson, Jr. Centennial Park. The USACE team did an outstanding job delivering a quality structure, which will not only protect critical infrastructure at the Col. Ward Pumping Station, but also serve to protect the development of the park around it. In a sense, the project is protecting both the history and the future of Buffalo’s waterfront. As I walked the project site and viewed the sunset that day, I was struck by a sculpture I had seen on several previous visits – local artist Nancy Gabriel’s “One More River to Cross.” It depicts the Underground Railroad, showing one human figure helping another ascend an arch rising from the ground.
