With Black history having been silenced or sidelined in the curriculum, Black History Month offers us an important opportunity to expand our understanding of Black history, commit to new ways of learning and teaching it, and support our students in making connections between the past and present. 

Join us for a one-hour webinar to explore how we engage with Black History Month and with this year’s theme in a way that acknowledges the importance of this history and celebrates the achievements that Black Britons have had on our society. We will also reflect on what we can all do to address ongoing injustices and inequalities, and how we can ensure Black history is taught beyond October and remembered throughout the academic year.

This event is for teachers in the UK.
