London mayor Sadiq Khan has released a new map of the underground where each stop honours a different Black trailblazer.

On Tuesday, Khan tweeted a picture of the new tube names and said: “We’re putting London’s Black history on the map.”

Created by TfL (Transport for London) and BCA (Black Cultural Archives) Heritage, the map aims to honour 272 “Black creators, leaders and trailblazers who have helped make London the city it is today”.

It was researched by historian Kelly Foster along with BCA.

The work honours Black History Month which takes place every October.

The last stop of the District and Central line Ealing Broadway has been renamed R. B. A. Wellesley-Cole, father of BFWG Past President Patrice Wellesley-Cole
