The Bernie Grant Trust was established in June 2000 in memory of the late Bernie Grant MP. Its aim is to continue his work for racial justice, in particular by providing relevant education and training. In keeping with this, the Trust has established an archive to reflect and record the life and times of Bernie Grant, who for over 35 years was at the forefront of a furious dialogue about equality in British society. The Bernie Grant Archive is a rich and vivid resource providing a unique record of the experiences of Black British people in recent history and the way they responded to events. The archive holds considerable information about disadvantage and discrimination, and the various ways in which the black community fought to combat injustices.
The Bernie Grant Trust has been funded by the Heritage Lottery Fund to explore how the Archive can be used to develop relevant and meaningful educational resources that can best support teaching the national curriculum, older students and independent learning.
In order to understand how we could best use the Archive to support your teaching, we need your help by taking this short survey. We will also be hosting some focus groups later in the year. If you would like to take part, please let us know by filling in the final question at the end.
