Black History Month

Black History Month

Welcome to Black History Month 2021 and this year’s theme which is ‘Proud to be’. We have an exciting range of events and resources to share with you and your students and we hope that you will make the most of accessing these activities, not just throughout Black History Month 2021, but throughout the year.

We invite you to explore our webpages below which we hope will inspire and inform both students and teachers alike, through interacting with a variety of academic and guest lectures, student ambassador vlogs, and online articles. Classroom resources suitable for a range of year groups are also available on request at any time of the year from our Teacher Toolkit section.
