African Caribbean Education Resource project was an independent educational charity, founded by Len Garrision in 1976, which developed and produced learning materials drawing on the Black experience. Homeschools were supported by ACER, and links were forged with community schools. The Inner London Education Authority endorsed ACER's work and their resources and publications were used across the country. The project also established the Black Youth Penmanship Awards scheme to enable young black people to be celebrated for their literary achievements. A number of black professionals including music critic Clive Davis, and novelist and barrister Nicola Williams, received the award in their youth.
