Black History Month was created by Carter G. Woodson in 1926. He aimed to combat racism by educating white students about black contributions to American life which were commonly downplayed, ignored or hidden.

 

It’s fair to say we’ve come as a long way since then, with overt racism becoming ever more unacceptable, and a global consciousness shifting toward respect, unity and open-mindedness. But there’s still room to grow.

 

Challenge:

 ØYou will be working in teams of 4

ØEach group will be representing one of the historical figures we have talked about already - Mary Seacole,  Walter Tull, Paul Stephenson and Claudia Jones
ØYou will have some time to find out more about your Black British History Hero using iPads and some more information from us
ØAs a team you will create a poster and a prepare a short presentation to educate each other about each of the four people - details about their life and achievements
ØAfter the presentations, we will have a class debate - which person had the biggest impact on British society? Which person’s legacy is the greatest? How are their actions are still relevant in our country today?

As a class we created a class charter -a set of rules and promises that we (children and adults) agree on for the classroom. These rights are important, as they help to keep us safe and happy while we are in school.
