Putting the Black in the Union Jack? Black British History in Education
UCL Bloomsbury Theatre
15 Gordon Street | London | WC1H 0AH | United Kingdom
Ticketing: Ticketed and Pre-booking essential
The Legacies of British Slave-ownership project (University College London) and Hackney Museum and Archives invite you to join us for 'Putting the Black in the Union Jack? Black British History and Education'. This free event has been funded through the Arts Council England and is part of the Share Academy initiative.
What makes a nation? What is national history? Who belongs in the story? Why does it matter? Stuart Hall once wrote that those that do not see themselves reflected in national heritage are excluded from it. The black presence in Britain has a long and rich history and yet black British history has often been marginalised and considered to be a post-Windrush phenomena. Focusing on areas which are part of the national curriculum, this event will explore how we can incorporate the stories of African men, women and children and their descendants.
