Black History Month 2021

 

This Friday marks the start of Black History Month 2021. In the UK, the month was established in 1987, to acknowledge, raise awareness and promote the vast contributions people of Black African and Caribbean descent have made to the UK and world history.

This year, at Camulos, we are celebrating BHM by:

 

  • Studying black artists and re-creating their work
  • Exploring black authors through English
  • Learning about historical and current black role models
  • Discovering new musical styles and enriching our curriculum
