HAP’s Black Peckham Archive - Can You Help?

Help us create a Black Peckham archive in 2020 to preserve documents and items from this moment in history.

BLM2Following the deaths of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor and Ahmaud Arbery in early 2020, we are asking students, staff and the wider community to help us create a Black Peckham archive in 2020, to help us teach about this moment to children in future.

We want to preserve, collect and document items of historical significance over this period, and are asking people to help by sending in items to our archive.

The Black Lives Matter movement has seen a surge in international support and social media attention. As a community, we are living through a moment in history. An important part of these conversations, especially here in the UK, is the teaching of Black History, and that of the Black British community, in our schools. This is something that our History Department at Harris Academy Peckham has heard loud and clear.

What sort of items do we need for the archive?

Due to Covid-19, these must only be items that can be sent via email. The types of items we are looking for include:

  • Social media posts
  • Speeches
  • Poems
  • Videos
  • Photos of an “artefact” you may have at home – flyer etc.
  • You own personal reflections of the Black Lives Matter movement in 2020.

When submitting these items, the History Department asks that you include a short piece of writing to explain why the item/source is important and useful to teaching students in 20 years' time about the Black Lives Matter movement.

An example from Mr Tye

Mr Tye has chosen this image from a news story about Edward Colston's statue. Click here to read what Mr Tye has written about this image, as an example of the piece of writing you can send it to accompany your item.


How to submit your item

Once all responses have been collected, they will act as an historical archive for the school to refer back to – like a time capsule – and will also be donated to the Black Cultural Archives in Brixton to preserve for future generations to use and study.

Submissions must be sent to Mr Tye, History Teacher at Harris Academy Peckham, at If you have any questions or need clarification please also email Mr Tye.
