“This mural shows the evolution of our Afro-Caribbean heritage. From first arrivals as fishermen to bringing families over and taking the risk to establish themselves here in an unknown land, growing food and building homes. We made this mural last year because we wanted to show the bravery of the Black people who explored and settled here. The quote is from Marcus Garvey, a person who built bridges from slavery towards freedom and promoted human rights for Black people.”
