British schools must teach Black British history

Research output: Other contribution

Abstract

Following the Black Lives Matter anti-racism protests of 2020, British history and the teaching and learning of this in schools came under scrutiny. Calls for curriculum change became louder, arguing for a more explicit teaching and learning about Britain’s cultural diversity, and particularly through Black British history.

This is because there are no explicit opportunities in the current national history curriculum for teaching and learning British history through Black British lives and experiences.
