The Last Stone
The humble workers who built this wall in 1976 left a space at the top and asked that the last stone be laid when Africa became free. The Freedom of Africa was an integral part of the vision espoused by Marcus Mosiah Garvey.

In 1994, the first multi-racial elections were held in South Africa and Nelson Mandela became President.

The last stone was laid on August 17, 1994 by Nigerian High Commissioner to Jamaica, His Excellency, Professor Emanuel Ugochukwa.
