Black History Month is celebrated every October in Britain.

The aims are to:

• Promote knowledge of Black History and experience.

• Disseminate information on positive Black contributions to British Society.

• Heighten the confidence and awareness of Black people in their cultural        heritage.

For October 2006, we present a collection of new resources provided by some of the schools involved with the 'Fishpool project' which aims to raise achievement of Black African Caribbean students in Gloucesterhire schools. These resources are made available to help all schools celebrate Black History Month. We hope you will find them useful!
