The Ahmed Iqbal Ullah Education Trust will shortly be publishing a book celebrating the achievements of Britain’s Black Olympic Heroes. Children from 15 schools in Manchester have written narrative biographies, created beautiful artwork and composed poetry, and fan letters about sportsmen and women from minority groups who have represented Great Britain on the Olympic stage. These include some of the most famous Black British Olympians such as Daley Thompson, young up and coming heroes like Louis Smith, and Paralympians such as Ade Adepitan and Alexandra Rickham.The book shows how Britain’s young people are inspired by our nation’s Black Olympic Heritage. It contributes to Manchester’s celebration of the London Olympic Games. This book will be an invaluable resource for teachers to share with their classes as we move closer to the major event of summer 2012. Target school group: KS2+3.
