Black History Month

Mon, 05 Oct 2020

Dear students

Further to my assembly, I would like to encourage you all to think about entering the competition I launched on Black History Month.

I would love to see a written essay or presentation (PowerPoint/Film/Poem/Art etc.) on an element of Black History that you are interested in. It can be a famous person or event or indeed a less famous person or event.

The only criteria is a focus on the positive value your individual or event from Black History has brought to an understanding on the issues of racism and prejudice, equality and justice. It can also be someone who has made a special contribution to UK in Science, Art, Literature, Business, Sport, Music etc.

This link to the Black History Month website is a really good site to help get your research started.  

If you are interested in Black  History long past or more recent, whether its famous people or people you are close to, I want to know about it.

  • Why does the individual or event  interest you?
  • Why are you inspired by it?
  • What have you learnt from it?
  • Why do you think it’s an important part of History?

Please send your writing or presentation on Black History Month to:

Mr Furlong

by midnight Friday Oct 30th

Please Include your name, PT and year group
