 Statue in Tribute to Stephen Foster

Close-up of a statue in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, showing a hand playing a banjo. The statue pays tribute to Stephen Foster, who penned many classic American songs, including "Oh, Susanna" and "Camptown Races." The statue has been removed for its racist implications; Foster depicted sitting and looking down on a Black man playing banjo who sits by Foster's feet.
