History Matters was formed in 2014 by a group of concerned black historians and teachers to highlight the alarmingly low numbers of history students and teachers of African and Caribbean heritage in Britain.


In co-operation with the Black Cultural Archives, the University of Chichester, the Royal Historical Society, the Historical Association and other partners, it held a major conference on this issue at the Institute of Historical Research in London in April 2015. 

The key concerns raised by the group were identified in a letter published in the Times Higher Education magazine which is available to view here.
