Black British Stories

We made 10 short documentaries about 10 brilliant black individuals who have contributed to our economy, culture and history. A different young person interviews each of them, asking them about their life and discovering how it fits into a wider picture of a time in place and how it's affected society today.

Intended as learning tools for classroom use, each film is available on BBC Teach and 4 of the films were broadcast on CBBC across the first week of May 2021.
