In 1998, on the occasion of the 150th anniversary of the abolition of slavery, a commemorative mural was unveiled at the Lycée Baimbridge in Pointe-à-Pitre. 150 meters long, the mural decorates the surrounding wall at the school’s entrance on the Boulevard des Héros [Heroes Boulevard].
Guadeloupean artists Bastareau, Léogane, and Michelle Chomereau-Lamotte, among others, along with art students from the Baimbridge school, students from the Lamentin Art School, and young graffiti artists from Pointe-à-Pitre worked together to produce this mural. The mural evokes the slave trade, images of colonial plantation life, and Guadeloupean heroes of slave resistance Louis Delgrès and Joseph Ignace.
