When Laurie Cunningham played professional football in London in the 1970s and 1980s, he faced racist chants and protests from the National Front. A blue plaque now recognises his achievements in football, including becoming the first black player to represent England in a competitive match. Below we take a look at the plaques to some of the other pioneering black figures who have helped to shape London’s history.
