Welcome to the UK Black History Zone

From 4 to 15 October 2021, school students can connect with historians and activists to learn about the figures that helped shape the modern-day UK, through the UK Black History Zone.

I’m History, Get me out of here is asking students to explore Black British history – learn about The Ivory Bangle Lady, whose ‘high-status’ burial ground has taught us about the diversity of Roman York, or John Edmonstone, the man who taught taxidermy to Charles Darwin while he was a student at the University of Edinburgh.

Students: Learn about the historical figures, Ask questions, and Chat with the historians! Don’t have a username? Ask your teacher!
