Black History Month 2019

As part of celebrating Black History and Culture, our Year 9 historians were invited to the University of Manchester to attend an event led by Professor David Olusoga, one of Britain’s foremost historians and presenter of documentary series’ ‘Civilisation’, ‘A House Through Time’, and ‘Black and British: A forgotten History’.

Professor Olusoga discussed the hope and potential he has seen through studying figures in history that at one time appeared almost absent from the history books. He encouraged students to read widely and find inspiration in History to influence their own futures like he had, drawing upon examples from his African heritage.
