These pages bring together two key sources, a vibrant novel by Joe Pemberton about a black boy growing up in Moss Side in the 1960s, and digital images of the streets, buildings and people of the same area in the same decade, from Manchester Local Images Collection. Worksheets focus on the key citizenship themes 'the changing face of urban England' and 'the diversity of national, regional and ethnic identities in the United Kingdom'. More details on how to use the resource pack appear on the worksheets page.
Read the selected extracts listed under the street names below, study the pictures, and complete the worksheets. There are more pictures of Moss Side in this Picture Gallery and on our on-line Local Images Collection.
