We speak to artist Samson Kambalu who won permission to design the statue for Trafalgar Square’s 4th Plinth. He discusses why he picked anti-colonial Baptist preacher John Chilembwe to be the figure for the 4th plinth on Trafalgar Square, how the statue and commemoration of the uprising brings detail to the horrors of the black experience under colonialism, how the reception of the statue is a litmus test for how welcome he is in Britain and much more!
