William Wilberforce statue

William Wilberforce statue

Have a prominent statue of Wilberforce and the set of petitioners who brought down the slavery in Britain. The first country in the world to abolish the slave trade from Africa.

Why is this important?

Because there has been a lot in the media about modern day slavery & racism it is essential that what Wilberforce and his set achieved is remembered publicly & in the modern curriculum for school children to know as part of the fabric of their education.
