Edward Colston: Bristol’s Dolphin School changed its emblem

One of the most memorable moments of the UK Black Lives Matter movement was the statue of the slave trader Edward Colston who was overthrown in Bristol. It was dramatically demolished by protesters in June 2020 and has since caused the local community to ponder its links to the controversial 17th-century businessman. One elementary school in Bristol has now decided to change its logo as it is linked to the Colston family crest. Dolphin School students helped a local artist design their new emblem.
