Why did the Whitechapel police fear a race riot?

Picture1Starting with this graffiti that appeared on a wall in Whitechapel, this enquiry gradually builds up student knowledge of an aspect of the hunt for the Ripper.

Your class will learn that this vital piece of evidence was quickly removed by a commanding officer? Why?

By looking at new information your students will appreciate the ethnic mix of Whitechapel and how this impacted upon the investigation.

They end by writing a display board for the original graffiti which is now proudly on display in a local East End cafe.
