Fakten

  • Belgium decided to gift the tower to Virginia Union University, one of the nation's foremost African American colleges, to commemorate the country's ties to the colonial Congo.
  • Originally constructed for the 1939 New York World's Fair, the tower served as the Belgian exhibition showplace for technology and innovation.
