Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic (BAME) History...

Wales is a multicultural nation, with migration into Wales strongly linked to our industrial past. Up to the present day, people have come to Wales to work, to study, to seek asylum and to live. We all contribute to the culture and history of Wales. In this Collection we aim to bring together the stories of ethnic minority people and communities in Wales.This resource is based on content currently published on People's Collection Wales. There is currently more content about African and Caribbean people and communities than other ethnic minority groups, and this is reflected in this resource. We are working to engage with organisations, communities and individuals to create a broader and more diverse representation of the people of Wales. This resource will grow as more content becomes available.Can you help? If you have content that will help tell the stories of ethnic minority individuals and communities in Wales (past and present) please add it to the People's Collection Wales.

Oral History: A Guide for Schools Cover Image Login to save this item A vector image of a star to represent action to save this item
Oral History: A Guide for Schools

History is all around us. We only have to ask our own families and communities. They can tell us enough stories to fill a library of books. This kind of history is called ORAL HISTORY. Documents and books often concentrate on famous people and big events. But many people’s experiences and voices have been hidden from history. Oral history fills in the gaps and gives us history which includes everyone. With digital technology, anyone can preserve oral histories and share them with others. It is a wonderful way of developing digital and interviewing skills while learning about history.  It can build the confidence of young people and respect between generations. This guide has been created in partnership by the Oral History Society and People’s Collection Wales. It offers helpful advice on getting started with an oral history project in your school or community.   Key Stage 2, 3 & 4 History, Literacy Skills, Digital Competence Framework   Learning Activity Pack This resource provides learning activities for your students using our website.

The Windrush Intergenerational Project was developed by the African Community Centre (ACC), working with young people in local schools, to research the lives of the Windrush generation who arrived in Wales from the West Indies between the 1940s and 1970s. The project sought to bridge the gap between older and younger generations, especially with regards to passing down culture, tradition, journeys, settlement and other experiences. It records and documents the amazing contributions that Black and Ethnic Minority migrants have brought to the UK, and to Swansea/Neath Port Talbot in particular. In total, the project celebrates the lives of ten elders, a combination of members of the Windrush generation and other persons whose contributions have made South Wales a multicultural society. The case study text is bilingual however the video interviews and booklet are available in English only.   Key Stage 3 & 4 History, Literacy skills, Digital Competence Framework   Case Study See how other schools have used our website to give you ideas for your own digital projects.
