Toppled slave trader’s statue goes on display in Bristol

Tuesday 08th June 2021 09:27 EDT

The sculpture of a slave trader which was defaced in BLM protests last year has now become a part of an exhibition in Bristol, almost a year to the day since it was dragged from its plinth by Black Lives Matter protesters and thrown into Bristol harbour. It was damaged, therefore it can no longer stand upright.  The display at M Shed forms the first part of the public consultation, with a survey also launched for people to provide their views on the future of the statue and of how Bristol’s history is told.
