Black Plaque Project

Havas Worldwide London Limited

Britain has paid tribute to its notable men and women since 1866 by placing blue plaques on buildings in London where they lived or worked. Yet only 1.6% of those honoured are of African or Caribbean descent. Ignored by the establishment during their lifetime, the significant contributions of many Black Britons continue to be ignored posthumously, and their stories are at risk of being erased from history. Our goal was simple: to preserve these precious stories of Black achievement and keep them alive so they can inspire future generations.
