A BOOK detailing black and Asian achievers will be launched next week.
Huddersfield-based publishing company Primary Colours will launch Did You Know? at the House of Lords on Monday during Black History Month.
The book is aimed at nine to 13-year-olds and has been written by assistant head teacher Shazia Akhar.
She said: "Teachers are required to teach different genres of writing, but often cannot find suitable texts which feature black and Asian people.
"I asked five people to tell me their stories."
The book features Muslim sporting role model and former Huddersfield rugby league player Ikram Butt and Bushra Ahmed, founder of the Joe Bloggs clothing company.
"With knowledge and education we can overcome ignorance, prejudice, religious and cultural intolerance."
Kirklees schools inspector Lance Lewis said "We have major cultural issues and we need to address them in the curriculum. Did You Know? helps to meet this need."
