Museum Education and The Black Curriculum

9 November 2020 @ 13:00 - 14:00

Free – £5

What is the Black Curriculum and how was it created?

Why is it important to bring black history and hidden stories to the forefront of education?

The Black Curriculum is a social enterprise that aims to empower young people in Britain, and embed black history so it is taught all year round. Lavinya Stennett started The Black Curriculum in 2019, as a solution to the problem of the lack of representation of black British history in education. The Black Curriculum believes that black history is British history, and it deserves to be taught in schools and all other educational organisations in Britain.

This GEM NW event in collaboration with GEM will raise awareness of The Black Curriculum, events to date and what you can do within your role and organisation to support a more inclusive and anti-racist learning philosophy.

Join in this 1-hour online session which will feature Lisa Kennedy, Engagement Officer with The Black Curriculum as well as a Q&A period with the chance to speak about how to put this learning into action. Session follow-up will include top tips and signposting to further reading as well as relevant research and organisations to follow to build upon the learning within the session.
