Financial Education


Black History Studies believes that financial education is very important and we aim to help families become debt free and financially independent. We do this through education to make the right choices via a variety of mediums

The BHS Financial Education Awareness Campaign is a campaign to increase community awareness about the importance of financial literacy and to make financial education available to everyone regardless of their background. Where possible, financial education should be free, fun and readily available to those who seek it.

We aim to help people to have greater confidence in making financial decisions. Anyone can grasp the concepts on how to take control of their money and make the right decisions today and in the future. We believe that everyone deserves to be empowered with the right information and education when it comes to their money.

Championed by Economics Graduate and Financial Educator Charmaine Simpson, we will use social media, website articles, videos, interactive seminars and courses, large events such as The Black Market & Film Festival, financial games and much more to spread awareness.

Inspired by the commemoration of the 150th birthday of Anne Malone and the 100th anniversary of the death of Madam CJ Walker who were the first female African American Millionaires.

Why Financial Education is important?
