At last the Old Royal Navel College, Greenwich has found a fit and proper home for the BBC's plaque from David Olusagda 2016 BBC 2 documentary Black British History A Forgotten Story. Previously it had been lost, stuck high up on the wall of the visitor center reception. I've written about how inappropriate that site was. Now the plaque's been moved to a more appropriate site. The Navel College announced this move in a celebratory tweet.
I had the chance to see the plaque in its new location for myself yesterday It is indeed as the College said in its tweet it has 'given [the plaque] pride of place' as it sits among other Tudor articles, objects and artefacts from the Tudor history of the Navel College including objects found whilst the site being excavated - the College sits on the site of one of Henry VIII's favourite palaces - The Palace of Placentia at Greenwich.
