How many statues of black people are there?

Feb 16,2020 3:36 am

The Killing of George Floyd weeks of protests in the UK and a debate about the history and diversity has awakened.

monuments to those who will in The Slave trade under the magnifying glass, with many.

The Mayor of London Sadiq Khan said that, instead of simply removing statues, to commemorate The Role that the minorities had on British history, including the Windrush Generation, and murdered student Stephen Lawrence .

How many statues Are there Black People ?

The short answer is that we don't know exactly.

As the statues Are generally approved at the local level, there is no Central place for the list.

But, (PMSA) has received thousands of statues in England, Wales and Scotland. This is the statues or sculptures Are available to the public (very few Are on private goods), and almost all Are outside.

We looked at 968 public statues or sculptures in the database, of which 610 were identified as a named People .

of these, only three Are of Black People - Two of Nelson Mandela and Desmond Tutu (though the latter, in Lewisham Town Hall ).

bust of Nelson Mandela in London is now listed

But while this list gives an insight, it is incomplete. A lot is based on voluntary work and some of the newer statues is not added to the database.

In the last ten years, there has been a concerted effort seems to reflect the UK's current and historical diversity.

With Online News -clippings, which we found 175 named and statues erected, which, since 2007, in the whole of the UK.

Of these, 21 were from black and minority ethnic groups (Sundays) individuals, including 11 black individuals. Of these, only six were the statues of the black British.

We also found a few other outdoor, clear-named-statues from before 2007 Are not included in the PMSA-list. These include.

Historical England, a charity organization, which manages monuments and buildings, notes of black individuals - a bust of Nelson Mandela on London's South Bank and "platforms piece' in Brixton. The latter is not, in our analysis, such as the statues created in the year 1986, and thought of The First statues of the black British Are not the names of historical figures.

when you consider all of these sources, we believe that there is a total of 15 outdoor statues called black individuals in the United Kingdom.

platforms was added, Brixton Station in the year 1986 as listed and in 2016

Avril Nanton tours focus runs on the black history in London. She says she has found More Than 30 statues, busts and bas-Reliefs of representation of Black People in The City , but not all of these Are of specifically named persons.

Those include boxer Nicola Adams , musician Jazzie B and Spurs footballer Ledley King , Are recorded, but may not be taken into account, traditional statues.

Mrs Nanton notes that, in their experience varies according to the representation in London.

"do you know an area like East London , a lot of Asian, Black People , has virtually zero representation, and in an area such as Westminster, which is basically full of mainstream People , has a lot of black statues, which is interesting," she says.

Blue plaques

Historical England is also responsible for the London 950 blue plaques, which building figures Are remarkable, with links to.

He says that less than 4% of the plaques Are dedicated to Black and Asian People .

The Charity says one of the issues in The Past was the lack of public nominations of ethnic minority, although they Are working on the improvement of the presentation. But they added they Are not aware of the plaques, the numbers directly involved in The Slave trade.

The Historic environment of Scotland, 88 plaques, one of the African-American anti-slavery activists Frederick Douglass , is dedicated to.

In Northern Ireland , the Ulster History Circle, a similar scheme, which is reminiscent of a commemorative plaque creates a black doctor.

there Are even more statues of People in The Slave trade?

view in the Historical England and PSMA-lists of statues and monuments that we have identified at least 15 statues of People who benefited directly and personally to trade invested in The Slave , without memorials, in churches or in cemeteries.

these include:

this is once again, not a complete list, that the databases Are incomplete, and some of the contributions to The Slave trade, Are clearer than others. Many others have benefited from or supported The Trade in any other way.

This statue of The Slave -owner Robert Milligan was now

For example, Prime Minister William Gladstone , has a minimum of six statues. He was The Son of a slave owner and helped his father secure compensation, as The Practice was abolished. The great-great-grandson of William Gladstone to remove a statue of the statesman from the house of The Family of the village.

But while there Are statues of People who supported slavery, there Are also People - often the contemporaries of these benefit from the slavery that condemns The Practice .

overall, we found a large number of statues of People , the campaigns against The Slave trade, including Joseph Priestly, and William Wilberforce .
