YMCA BLACK HISTORY



YMCA has a proud history in the Black community from being the birthplace of the racial equality movement in the UK in 1931 to housing the first of the Windrush generation


A report into how young Black people experience institutional racism in the UK.


What young Black people go through every day. YMCA found:

*95% of young Black people heard racist language at school

*47% of young Black people felt the need to change their name on job application forms

*64% of young Black people worry about being treated unfairly by the Police.


How young black people are held back and let down by the systems that are supposed to support us all. And they say;


“As a young Black person, you learn to survive in a society that is not built to accommodate your existence.”


This is a sad situation facing young Black people all over the UK. YMCA has put together a pdf of stories from young black people.
