Learning is at the heart
of the 'We Are One' vision.


We believe exploring the importance of Black history and culture in Britain should not be limited to one month a year.

We want every teacher in the country to be able to access our learning resources, including exhibition-based special projects, that link to the national curriculum for Key Stages 1, 2, 3 and 4, delivered across a variety of subjects. 

Since opening our new heritage centre our Learning team have engaged over 10,000 learners. Our goal is to continue to provide greater access and learning to young people through school visits, outreach programmes, lectures and workshops.

Our integrated approach aims to critically engage students and teachers, offering a deeper insight into how the past shapes ideas about the present and future. 

As we mark the 30th anniversary of Black History Month, we also place a marker for change and a new future vision. BCA aims not only to remember the past and capture the present, but to build a collective voice that empowers future generations.

Our Learning Team has expanded, and we collaborate with more schools, colleges and universities, bringing the benefit of our archival material to every degree of learning.
