Black History Month
Black History Month is an opportunity to understand Black histories, going beyond stories of racism and slavery to spotlight Black achievement. This year's theme was 'The family': Representation, identity and diversity. This month-long observance in the UK is a chance to celebrate Black achievement.
This year, it also follows a tumultuous period where racial justice calls reached a fever pitch, providing a fresh reminder to take stock of where systemic racism persists and give visibility to the people and organisations creating change.
So, way way back in October at Fulwood, we celebrated Black History Month and the contributions of black people to its community and to the world. It is an opportunity for a continued engagement with history this is vital as it helps give context for the present. One of the competitions we have each year is a poster competition and the winner has the chance to have their poster displayed as centre piece for our next year's celebrations. Below are the students and their contribution. Well done to our winners.
