The removal of the statue appears to be a logical conclusion especially as the museum name is changing. I don’t know, but I would presume the board are middle-aged white men predominantly.

The times have changed and it is time we recognised all in our national statues. Black, white, male and female.

I loved your article and you have convinced me to check out the museum when it opens.
