Young Historian’s Project (2019)


Description: Young Historians Project emerged as one of the outcomes from the History Matters conference held in April 2015 at the Institute of Historical Research, highlighting the alarmingly low numbers of history students and teachers of African and Caribbean heritage in Britain. 

  • In 2016 only three Black students were admitted to train as History teachers

  • Official statistics indicate that History is the third most unpopular subject among Black undergraduates

  • During 2012/13 there were 1340 Black undergraduates studying History, 1.8% of the total

  • In 2016 it was estimated that there were less than 10 Black PhD students studying History in the country
