Black Bristolians: People Who Make a Difference

This has been developed in partnership by Children and Young People's Services, the Bristol Black Archives Partnership (BBAP), and Firstborn Creatives. The pack is designed to enable teachers to address a range of race equality issues with confidence, and to provide a sense of Black History and role models for young people.

Each pdf includes a shortened biography with photos, a full biography, lesson plans and resources for 18 Black Bristolians. Lesson plans for each Black Bristolian are available from Foundation Stage to Key Stage 3.
