Black Boy Lane in London was renamed due to its racist name but reappeared on changed signage during a transition period informs lbc.co.uk.
The decision to rename the Street Black Boy (literally “black boy”) came after several local residents complained, as the terms “black boy” or “boy” have historically been used in relation to black men as a way to disparage them. with the suggestion that they should be paid less than their white counterparts.
After the local council made the final decision on the renaming and £186,000 was spent on replacing road signs, it turned out that the offensive name remained on them as a reference to the old name of the lane, as required by the rules. The old name must remain on the signs for the transition period of one year.
Black Boy Lane in the London Borough of Haringey has been renamed La Rose Lane in honor of local broadcaster John La Rose, remembered as a champion of black history and equality.
