16 years ago, Patrick Vernon OBE launched the first 100 Great Black Britons campaign to ensure the continued legacy and achievements of Black people in Britain. In 2019 Patrick launched a new campaign with the results being published later this year.
In the light of the COVID-19 crisis and with many schools closed we are launching the 100 Great Black Britons home school competition open to all age groups. This competition, sponsored by The National Education Union (NEU), the largest education union in Europe, is a fantastic way for children and young people to learn more about the legacy and achievements of Black people in Britain and how they helped shape our country.
They can work on their own or as “virtual” teams with friends and family. To help we are also adding teaching resources to this website to support home schooling, and we are inviting people to add their own resources to share with others.Enter Competition
Teaching resources to support home learning
We have pull together a range of school resources in conjunction with our partners that teachers and parents may use for home schooling and for the competition. But we also need your help to create a wide range of resources. Upload your resources and share with others.
All these resources can be linked to subject areas covered by the National Curriculum in KS1; KS2; KS3 and KS4. They can be used to teach pupils and students about Black British History and the development of a multicultural Britain.See Resources
