: Digital photograph of Black Lives Matter protests in Bristol, 07/07/2020. Photographed by David Griffiths. The statue of Edward Colston is just about to hit the ground, head first. It is blindfolded, and there are ropes around the feet. A piece of black fabric (that had been covering the statue) lies on the ground, near the head. A statue that read 'COLSTON MUST FALL' is by the statue plinth; only the 'FALL' part can be seen. A crowd cheers and takes photos in the background.

This object is in store, please contact the Museum to arrange to see the object.
