Raising standards in education through Culture, Diversity, and Inclusion

Uncover the hidden histories of those that built the UK and those currently leading the way with the Figures of Black British Society (FOBBS) app.

The Problem

Black British achievements and contributions are not woven into our society. This has led to a number of issues:

Achievements Not Known

The work that historic Black Britons have achieved isn’t widely known. This is painting a picture that Black Britons didn’t have any part to play in making the UK the powerful country that it is today.

Too Few Inspirational Figures

UK schools do not regularly teach about Black Britons. This can lead to Black British children growing up with invisible boundaries on what they can achieve.

Lack of Representation

There is still a lack of diversity in most industries even though it’s been proven that more diverse teams have better outcomes for companies.

Challenging Environments

Daily challenges of systemic racism and unconscious bias are still affecting black and mixed heritage individuals.

Our Solution…

To Showcase Inspirational Black British Figures In One Resource.

The Figures Of Black British Society (FOBBS) is an app that will focus on delivering high quality information of figures with Black British heritage.


This app will benefit your child by being:

We link to podcasts of the interviews or biographies from these figures that will further support a figures profile of background information.


We want to ensure that the content is accessible to all audiences and ages, so all text content will have a text-to-speech option available.
