'A young American boy's dream to change the times he lived in ended up changing the path for many. This sculpture is dedicated to Ira Frederick Aldridge (1807–1867).
This sculpture, inspired by Ira's story, reminds us to follow our dreams and make the difference we want to see in the world. As an artist I believe that public art should fuel and empower our minds, and this sculpture is made to its surroundings and honour Coventry's history.'
