Use this editable PowerPoint I made as an assembly to explain Black History Month. Click HERE –>. Please note I have left links to further reading/resources in the notes section of the PowerPoint! I have also made it very plain looking so you can add your own school colours/logo etc!
BHM Staff Briefing 1st Oct 2020 is another version edited by somebody!
What to do:
October is Black History Month in the United Kingdom.
What do you do? Do you do anything? Should you do anything? There are big discussions and debates about Black History Month. I decided to focus my assembly on the history and roots of BHM rather than regurgitating messages about key Black people that are well known anyway; e.g MLK, Nelson Mandella, or Rosa Parks for example.
Of course Black History should be integral to the school curricula and not a bolt on. However, for me, signposting is better than nothing which is the default for many I am afraid.
Integrate ‘Black History’ across HISTORY.
Ensure this is not a bolt on… Blog to follow.
