“Students were able to engage in BHM conversations which are relevant to today. I think it’s really important for students to recognize that change in the past has absolutely shaped our lives but they too have the power. The dance workshops also gave students an insight to other forms of dance which we do not necessarily explore as part of the curriculum.”
Niki Tailor, Elizabeth Garrett Anderson School
“Doing a modern day black history hero, someone they could relate to, was really successful and the students were very engaged because of it.”
