Mary Prince statue should be on Cabinet grounds

Mary Prince Emancipation Park (Photograph supplied)

Dear Sir,

Recently, while experiencing a period of sleeplessness, and for reasons unknown, I thought of Mary Prince. With Cup Match soon upon us and the second day dedicated to commemorating her life, I have a suggestion for the powers that be.

That is, that a statue be erected in her honour on the grounds of the Cabinet Office. I am aware that there is one there already, namely Sally Bassett. She could be moved to the roundabout at the Foot of the Lane, a more appropriate site.

I’ve always thought that Mary Prince was more deserving of recognition than Sally Bassett, simply owing to the significant contribution to the abolition of slavery that the former made in her lifetime.
