The Black and Asian Studies Association (BASA; till October 1997 ASCACHIB) was formed in 1991. The aim of the Association is to foster research and to disseminate information on the history of Black peoples in Britain. A Newsletter was published three times a year until 2013. We take up issues with government departments and quangoes, such as English Heritage re-Blue Plaques and much else, with the QCA on school curricula, and MLA regarding archives, libraries and museums. We have also worked on specific projects with other organisations. e.g. teh Runnymede Trust and in the past with CASBAH, and the National Archives' website on the history of Black peoples in Britain since the mid 16th century.
