Young Historians Project Logo

The Young Historians Project (YHP) is a collective formed to encourage the development of young historians of African and Caribbean heritage in Britain. YHP aims to serve as a space for young people to grow not only as historians – but also as researchers, writers, editors, public speakers, and creatives. With a focus on Black British history, YHP creates multi-dimensional public history projects based on original research. YHP hopes to engage the public in learning about diverse and underrepresented histories in Britain.

"I saw that they were collectively thinking about what could be done to challenge the status quo and I wanted to be part of this work."
