"These statues were used as markers on the Underground Railroad throughout the South into Canada," said historian and author Charles Blockson, curator of the Afro-American Collection at Temple University in Philadelphia. "Green ribbons were tied to the arms of the statue to indicate safety, red ribbons meant to keep going." He added.
