Black History Month

During the past few weeks, assemblies have focused on celebrating Black History Month. We have looked at the stories of individuals including: Martin Luther King, Mary Seacole, Rosa Parks and Nelson Mandela.

The main purpose has been to develop an understanding as to how individuals and groups have striven to overcome inequality and create fairness for all. It's important not to forget the determination shown by so many people, not just those listed, in making this world a fairer place for everyone.

Blue Class, as part of their World War II topic, also looked at the role of the Tuskegee Airmen and their bid to be treated equally as pilots rather than just undertaking routine labouring jobs in the USAAF.
