The Ahmed Iqbal Ullah Education Trust helps people of all ages and backgrounds learn about Britain’s ethnic minority communities. We run oral history projects to collect the life stories of Black communities in Manchester, organise events and exhibitions to share Black history and work with schools to make sure the next generation has a positive attitude to diversity in Britain.
Ahmed Iqbal Ullah was killed by a fellow-pupil in the playground of a Manchester school in 1986, aged thirteen years. AIUET is named in his memory and works out of the Ahmed Iqbal Ullah Race Relations Resource Centre in Manchester Central Library. AIUET is glad to acknowledge core funding provided by Manchester City Council and The University of Manchester.
All members of staff at the Ahmed Iqbal Ullah Race Relations Resource Centre express our horror and sorrow at the disgusting attack on young people at the Arena in Manchester on 22 May. Our thoughts are with the bereaved and those who are suffering. We are proud of our great multicultural city and totally condemn the instigators of terrorism who lie and abuse the name of Islam.
