Finding Black British Stories

Your task is to research some Black British histories not dissimilar to the African-American civil rights struggles you may already be familiar with.
For this task we want you to research and find a British story related to one of the following:

1) Civil Rights Movement

2) Bus Boycotts

3) Race riots

4) Black Panthers

We often associate these events with the Civil Rights Movement in America, but what can you find out about similar movements here that have informed the experience of Black Britons throughout history?

Write up a short research file and think about ways in which these stories could be implemented into your teaching. Share your ideas below.
