Black History Month

We have been acknowledging Black History Month throughout October and learning about contributions to the world from individuals from different walks of life. Our Maths Department specifically looked at the influence within the mathematical and science world.

Why do we celebrate Black History Month?

  • Black History Month started in 1926 to promote awareness and knowledge of Black history and culture.
  • To celebrate moving away from segregation towards unity.
  • To learn from the mistakes made in the past and to ensure we don’t do them again.
  • To remember the position that figures such as Nelson Mandela and Rosa Parks took to stand for their rights and promote peace.
