Nubian Jak Community Trust plaques

http://www.itzcaribbean.com/heritage_plaque_scheme.php

The Nubian Jak Community Trust was set up by Jak Beula, who initiated a scheme to commemorate historic black figures in 2004, starting with a plaque for Bob Marley in Camden. Since then, the organisation has erected over 15 plaques around the UK. Funding comes from donations, as well as through sales of the Nubian Jak board game, which also highlights famous black people, via trivia questions and historical facts.
