Founded by Lavinya Stennet, the Black Curriculum is an organisation dedicated to promoting the learning of Black British history within schools, via workshops and free teaching resources. Black British history is currently not taught consistently in British schools, despite being recommended by reports such as the Windrush review and the MacPherson Report as a way of tackling racism. This series provides a resource to fill the gap and aims to support the work that the Black Curriculum is doing. The books will act as a resource in the classroom, as well as promoting independent learning. The bold illustrations from Black British illustrators, and age-appropriate text present the information in a fun and accessible way.
At DK, we believe in the power of discovery.
