About this Event

Misplacement of black people in school education

This event will bring together a range of black experts to discuss the lack of black history taught in UK schools. Our panel will be sharing their experiences, highlighting what change can and needs to be made whilst highlighting resources and organisation who have already started the journey of ensuring black history is properly represented within schools in the UK.

#YoungAndBlack

Following the impact of COVID-19 on BAME people across the world, the echoes of tragedies such Windrush and Grenfell and culminating in the murder of George Floyd in the US, we launched the #YoungAndBlack campaign alongside, My Life My Say and The Diana Award, and activist, Jermain Jackman. The #YoungAndBlack campaign is a safe space to share, listen and learn from the experiences of young Black people.

Speakers details to come.
