Our Work

Thinking Black is a social enterprise supporting Black British students to develop key academic, communication, and leadership skills. Our students have the opportunity to creatively imagine the future through written and spoken responses to social and political issues that directly affect them.

The flagship Essay Writing Programme has engaged over 200 Year 12 students since 2017, many of whom have since studied at the likes of Oxford, Cambridge, and within the Russell Group.


As we continue to expand, we hope to build an intergenerational network of young Black talent that supports and invests in one another’s academic, career, and personal development.

Working to equip and empower a generation of young Black voices.
