A statue of a woman holding up a baby is based on a poem of the same name by Guyana-born Cecile Nobrega. It is said to be London's first statue of an African-Caribbean woman and celebrates the contribution of African Caribbean women. The installation of the statue marks the 60th anniversary of the arrival of the 'Empire Windrush' ship to Britain, and the 200th anniversary of the end of the transatlantic slave trade.
