The statue of Captain Arthur Andrew Cipriani on Independence Square gets spruced up on the occasion of the 50th anniversary of TT's Independence, with a lavish coating of black paint from head to toe. Known as the champion of the barefoot man, and having held the post of Mayor of Port-of-Spain for a record eight terms, the statue to Cipriani's memory was unveiled on April 17, 1959 by then Chief Minister Dr Eric Williams, who declared on the occasion: "Captain Cipriani is the pioneer of the nationalist movement of Trinidad and Tobago. With the unveiling of this statue we commemorate our own historical development, our own positive action, our own native history made by native hands, and the aspiration of our native peoples."
