The Ahmed Iqbal Ullah Education Trust was established in 2001. We archive the life stories of Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic (BAME) communities in Manchester, by running oral history projects, hosting events and exhibitions, and working with schools, for past, present and future generations. Our activities include:
Working with BAME community groups to collect life histories, photographs and documents so their histories are preserved and shared. Supporting schools and teachers develop an anti-racist curriculum. Creating Black history resources for use in school and community settings. Publishing multicultural stories and biographies of Black heroes written and illustrated by school children. Organising events, exhibitions and activities to share knowledge of the contributions of BAME communities to British history. Trust and Centre staff works closely together on many projects. The outputs of most community and school based projects are available for visitors to explore at the Resource Centre.
