London's Historic Blue Plaques Seek More Diversity as 1,000th Marker Is Unveiled

  • English Heritage is expanding its blue plaque program to include more women, people from minority ethnic backgrounds, and community groups in order to better reflect the diversity of London.
  • Each year, English Heritage installs a dozen blue plaques to honor notable individuals, with selections made from about 100 nominations. The process involves crafting the plaques from clay, inscribing them with the honoree's name and accomplishments, applying a blue glaze, and firing them in a kiln.
  • Recent plaques have honored figures such as Princess Sophia Duleep Singh, a suffragette and critic of British rule in India; Ottobah Cugoano, a campaigner against slavery; and Ada Salter, the first woman to be elected mayor of a London borough.
