Black History Month October 2020

You might hear some people ask ‘Why is there Black History Month?’

Answer: Awareness and education about the history of white people is well established but black history is under-represented and under-reported. Dedicating a month to it every year goes some way to redressing that balance and educating us about our shared history.

Each class will be learning about Black History Month during October and part of November and focusing on one inspirational person who has changed the world in a positive way.
