We are inviting teachers to bring their classes to our study day on 6 October 2017. The aim of this event is to gather secondary school and college students from across the region and give them a taster session on Black history. Highlights include a short talk on Black British history and people of African descent in Hull and East Yorkshire, an oral history interview with Bax from the local band Bud Sugar and a trip to see our fantastic exhibition.
For more information please see the event flyers below. Click on each flyer to download.

The Africans project team would like to remind everyone involved in education that we have an amazing Schools page on our website! See the link above. Please feel free to browse the content and use some of our fantastic resources to get children and young adults involved in uncovering the region's Black History.
As a starter, Martin Spafford has contributed a wealth of information on Africans in Britain from the Roman era to the Twentieth Century. Although this work is aimed at GCSE students it has the potential to be adapted for children and young people of any age. Also Hull City Council’s School Library Services are able to support schools with resources please click here for a link to their website. In addition, we would be happy to supply a workshop for teachers to help them engage with Black history in this region.
If you are a teacher, mentor or student there are plenty of ways to engage with our project so please do get involved. Press the contact us button below if you request any further information.
