About Us


Pursuit of Happiness is a Kirklees, West Yorkshire based not for profit organisation and a registered Community Interest Company (CIC).  We have an ambition of making Huddersfield, surrounding areas and nationwide a more harmonious place in which our Black community are able to thrive. We exist to make a difference for our African Diaspora across Kirklees and beyond. Equality, diversity and inclusion should be equally guaranteed for all without regard to race.

Our Mission
We aim to identify critical issues and work towards tangible and generational change that will significantly benefit our Black community. A constructive working relationship between Authorities/Statutory Bodies and the Black community is paramount, with them being directly involved when decisions are being made concerning them. We will be assisting with developing grassroots initiatives to increase equality, diversity and inclusion, with ourselves being the bridge directly into the heart of the community.

Systemic and institutional racism along with oppression among other areas of racial injustices, is and has always been prevalent in the UK regarding our Black/Brown African Caribbean residents.

Our Vision


Have an authentic grassroots representation via our weekly FREE to access online meetings. These events are a way for Pursuit of Happiness CIC to conduct research before proposing a point of view on behalf of our Black community.  We are a welcoming and relaxed digital centre that all our community residents can attend.

Educational & interesting reading


How To Be an Antiracist

Stirring and provocative, How to be an Antiracist skewers smug self-satisfaction about liberal credentials by stating that we are all complicit in racist incidents. Only by assertive ‘antiracism’ can such appalling abuse and attack begin to be curbed. An incendiary polemic from an acknowledged authority on the subject.

How the West Indian Child is made Educationally Sub-normal in the British School System

How the West Indian Child is made Educationally Sub-normal in the British School System (1971) Bernard Coard’s polemical pamphlet, addressed directly to black parents, set out the “scandal of the Black Child in Schools in Britain”. The book was published by New Beacon for the Caribbean Education and Community Workers’ Association (CECWA).

The Measure of a Man

The measure of a man is what he does with power. The measure of a man is not necessarily his title or his position, but rather how he treats others. If you want to see the true measure of a man, watch how he treats his inferiors, not his equals.

The Final Speeches

Very inspiring. Malcom X was not like people said he was. This was a man who wanted justice, rights and peace for his black brothers and sisters. He was not a man who thought killing was always the answer. This man was intelligent, wise and understood the circle we call life.

The Fire Next Time

The two essays were first respectively published in American magazines in late 1962: "Letter from a Region of My Mind" in The New Yorker,[3] and "My Dungeon Shook" in The Progressive.[4] They were then combined and published in book form in 1963 by Dial Press, and in 1964 in Britain by Penguin Books. Critics greeted the book enthusiastically; it is considered, by some, as one of the most influential books about race relations in the 1960s.[5] It was released in an audiobook format in 2008, narrated by Jesse L. Martin.

The Souls Of Black Folk

The Souls of Black Folk is a classic work of American literature by W. E. B. Du Bois. It is a seminal work in the history of sociology, and a cornerstone of African-American literary history. To develop this groundbreaking work, Du Bois drew from his own experiences as an African-American in the American society. Outside of its notable relevance in African-American history, The Souls of Black Folk also holds an important place in social science as one of the early works in the field of sociology.

African Europeans - An Untold History

As early as the third century, St Maurice―an Egyptian―became leader of the legendary Roman Theban Legion. Ever since, there have been richly varied encounters between those defined as ‘Africans’ and those called ‘Europeans’.
