National Curriculum

During the three years of the original project NBHA collected a wide range of information relating to Black History and is committed to disseminating that information and does so through a range of educational projects.

As part of the Shaping the Future project, NBHA has worked with educationalists and teachers to create resources that are linked to the national curriculum so that Black History and diversity can be incorporated into classroom teaching.


Northamptonshire Black History Association has developed from a community project established in 1982, as a volunteer led, community based initiative. In the summer of 2005, the Northamptonshire Black History Association formed as a membership organisation to carry on the activities of the project.


Northamptonshire's Black History

Northamptonshire’s Black History goes back over 800 years, and is unusually well-recorded due to the commitment of local volunteer historians over the past 30 years.

Settler communities from Africa, Asia and the Caribbean grew strongly in Northamptonshire during the second half of the twentieth century.Their organisations grew too, and with them came an interest in tracing and recording the past.
