Meet the faces behind the organisations that are working tirelessly to bridge the wide knowledge gap of Black British History.

It seems like a radical thought but Black History is actually part of British history! With the neglecting of Black pioneers of the past and the casting away of Black hero’s to only one month.

This video calls to question why we are not learning more of our stories from a young age. Following the 75th anniversary of the Windrush generation.

Campaigns to teach more Black History in schools remain ongoing from Black activists and community leaders.

This video amplifies the voices of educators who have been working throughout the whole year to reach audiences who haven’t heard the inspirational stories of Black British figures.

With voices from Dr. Ayshah Johnston from the Black Cultural Archives and Ademola Adeniji from Learning Through the Arts; this video explores what actions people are taking to normalise Black history.
