The duo launched Black History Studies in 2007 as they discovered that people wanted to learn about their history from an African perspective but there were no real outlet offering a range of learning opportunities.
They said, “we believe that Black History and Black Studies should be studied throughout the year and not just during Black History Month held in October in the UK or February in the United States and the Caribbean. El-Hajj Malik El-Shabazz (Malcolm X) said that “Education is your passport to the future, for tomorrow belongs to the people who prepare for it today”‘. Black History Studies supports this view and encourages people to learn about Black History and Culture and use it to develop their lives and others.
The mission of the organisation is to inform, inspire and empower people through Black History and Black Studies by educating the community to educate themselves thereby creating a self-sustaining learning circle. Black History Studies provides a wide range of courses and activities to provide people with the opportunity to pursue their interest in Black History and Black Studies.
Black History Studies offers the African and Caribbean community an opportunity to empower and enable themselves to develop self-knowledge and identity through Black History and Culture. Offering Black History and Black Studies Presentations, courses on Black History and Black Studies, Museum Lecture Tour, Presentations for hire, International Study tours, Film Screenings through their Community Cinema Programme, Resources and much more.
