Watching Us Uprooted (1997) referenced the Roots television miniseries.

Watching Us Uprooted (1997) referenced the Roots television miniseries. Holley explained, "They're beginning to talk more about the heritage and culture of African Americans now. I want the city to understand the importance of the art on this hillside, that what they destroy here is what
they already seen on TV, the important roots of our people, but they don't seem to be understanding." The piece was destroyed two weeks after completion.
