I would like to give a huge thanks to Sanam Mirza, a History teacher from 'oop north' somewhere, who sent through some absolutely brilliant resources for the 20th century section of the website. There are 6 lessons which form a great little scheme of work on the contribution that Black and Asian people have made to the UK. Apart from the lovely presentation across all of the units, the most important aspect of these resources is that they will really engage pupils in the work, which is so vital for getting a deeper understanding. The other exciting element is the lesson on Noor Inayat Khan a fascinating woman who was a British secret agent during the Second World War, particularly as I am well aware that the Asian representation on the website is lacking and needs to be developed further.

So, anyone else who is out there lurking, and has got some resources that cover any aspect of Black and Asian British history, then please please send them in. You can email them to me at any time or just drop me a line and tell me your thoughts on the website.
