The Mary Slessor Memorial is located in the Union Terrace Gardens, Aberdeen. It is a tribute to Mary Slessor (1848 - 1915), a United Presbyterian Church of Scotland missionary in Calabar, eastern Nigeria. She became known as the 'white queen of Okoyong', recognised for her determined work and strong personality which earned her the respect of local African tribes, spreading Christianity and promoting women's rights. To them she was "Mother of All The Peoples" or, more simply, "Ma". Mary Slessor is commemorated today on the £10 banknote issued in Scotland by the Clydesdale Bank.
