Nubian Jak Academy

Through a network of educators, we develop bespoke learning and education resources for schools and colleges based on NJCT plaque recipients, transatlantic stories and Commonwealth histories..



Joint Commemorative Projects

The Trust works in partnership with educational groups, cultural institutions, local government, and public and private sector organizations. Its activities include exhibitions, seminars, workshops, and learning programs, as well as managing a national plaque and sculpture scheme. The scheme, which is the only one of its kind in Europe, highlights Black and minority ethnic presence in Britain by commemorating individuals who have made a recognizable contribution to the nation. These individuals (mostly deceased) are either nominated by members of the public, or recommended by a special panel within the Trust, to receive a commemorative plaque. .



Diversity Awareness

We collaborate with diverse talents from academics, community activists, artists and corporates to deliver diversity awareness workshops and presentations on the importance of local history and community sustainability for corporate environments.
