Black History Month falling in October

28th September 2001 at 01:00
With Black History Month falling in October, it's worth looking at the booklet Hidden History, which focuses on the lives and experiences of some African and Afro-Caribbean people in Greater Manchester. Aimed at pupils at key stages 2 and 3, it relays brief autobiographies of three residents from three generations. These are set within statistics and timelines that explain the "push" of war and the "pull" of opportunity that brought them to a city that once had strong links with the slave trade, but also hosted the 1945 Pan African conference.

Hidden History costs pound;1 (plus stamped A4 envelope) from Development Education Project, co The Manchester Metropolitan University, 801 Wilmslow Road, Didsbury, Manchester M20 2QR. Tel: 0161 445 2495; fax: 0161 445 2360; email:
