London's First Integrated School Plaque
London's first integrated school was established by the Colonial Church and School Society and was located in the infantry barracks of the British garrison. Many Black children faced prejudice in London's public schools, a fact brought to the attention of the Colonial Church and School Society by Reverend Samuel Ward. The integrated school was built as an attempt to provide a space where Black and white children would be treated alike.
