London’s famous blue plaques have served as a permanent tribute to Britain’s notable men and women since 1866. Yet only a handful of those honoured are of African or Caribbean descent. Ignored or discriminated against by the establishment during their lifetime, many historically significant individuals continue to be excluded posthumously. Their names and the important contributions they made to society are at risk of being erased from history forever. The Black Plaque Project seeks to preserve this precious history and keep these stories alive so they can inspire future generations of Britons.
