Courses and Resources

Black History Walks  is dedicated to helping educators create engaging learning experiences for their students. Over the past 16 years, the BHW team have created an extensive catalogue of resources to support teachers, pupils and the public in exploring Black history in Britain.


In 2022, delayed from 2020 by the pandemic, Jacaranda published our revolutionary book ‘Black History Walks in London Volume 1′ a written walking tour of the city from an African/Caribbean perspective. See it HERE

In 2021 in collaboration with Pearson Edexcel we produced a unique and pioneering GCSE exam text book for schools. The book features Black British Civil Rights activism in Notting Hill and is based on our walk in that area. For details and a sample chapter click HERE .We also worked with the National Portrait Gallery on three short art videos which can be seen HERE

In 2011, we worked with Teachers TV to create a mini-documentary based on our walks for use in classrooms. The interactive video, split into four sections, covers important historical events, figures and venues including the Bank of England, Docklands, war memorials, William Davidson and Olaudah Equiano.

Since creating this documentary, we have added countless videos, books, websites and DVDs to our bank of educational resources. The Black History Walks YouTube channel is a rich source of video content that includes talks by academics and experts as well as insights into the events we run.

We run public courses on James Baldwin, Toni Morrison, History of Black Film, African Women Resistance Leaders four times a year. Our programme of talks (both online and in-person) provides a fantastic learning resource for course participants, and we are always happy to hear from groups who would like to arrange a bespoke talk or course for their educational or business setting.
