October is Black History Month. You will find the Black History Month website is teeming with activities, talks and events. The site also has some wonderful resources that you can tap into for your studies and/or for interest.
This guide was created to highlight some of the resources available which are of particular relevance to Black history and Black experiences of education. The resources detailed in this guide were identified through personal knowledge, via mailing lists and consultation with librarians and academics. It is hoped that the guide will be built upon as more resources come to light and that it may become a one stop shop for information on education relating to Black history and Black educational experiences.
Additionally, this guide includes resources pertaining to Asian educational experiences also as 'BME' refers to both Black and Asian within the UK. Resources and organisations have been selected to illustrate the range and content available and encourage wider knowledge of and usage of these resources.
In summary, this guide seeks to be an inclusive hub for information, which is sometimes hard to locate, relating to Black and Asian communities in the UK, first and foremost in terms of education and also provide a snapshot of some of the vast range of international resources available.
