In 2022, YHP collaborated with publishing house Lawrence Wishart for their Radical Black Women book series to create educational resources on the history of black women’s activism in Britain. Alongside illustrations by artist Meera Shakti Osborne, the booklets include short profiles on significant historical figures such as Amy Ashwood Garvey, Claudia Jones, Jessica Huntley, and Gerlin Bean. The resources are available for download via the links below and are free to reproduce for non-commercial use. Click here for more information.
THE NATIONAL ARCHIVES
In 2021, YHP worked with The National Archives as part of their 'Education and Outreach' digital programme. For the 'Post-war: 1945–Present' classroom resources series, YHP created a lesson pack on the role of African nurses in the post–war health service in Britain. The resource facilitates discussion–based learning and primary source analysis on themes including race, gender, post-war migration, and the history
of medicine. The pack also provides teacher guidance notes and connections to the curriculum. Click here to visit the webpage.
Below are downloadable KS3 and KS4/5 workbooks, which include writing exercises, primary source analysis tasks, a Black British history timeline, and history themed word–searches, crosswords, and quizzes. There are also short videos to explain each section of the workbook. The resources are available for download via the links below and are free to reproduce for non-commercial use.
