Black British History

The Black British History project aims to foster creative dialogue between researchers, educationalists, archivists and curators, and policymakers. The project seems to identify and promote innovative new research into the histories of people of African origin or descent in the UK. The project website hosts a database of expert researchers and archivists, both academic and independent, and provides an introduction to the growing body of Black British History resources available.

Termly workshops on 'What's Happening in Black British History?' are hosted under the auspices of the project; these take place within and outside London and consider a range of issues in Black British History, including how scholars have defined the field, debates around how - and why - to teach Black British History, and the tensions between celebrating the achievements of people African descent in the UK and applying a critical perspective to the past.
