About this Event

Following a global resurgence in Black Lives Matter protests, there has been an exciting renewed interest in the history curriculum and curriculum reform; what is being taught in our schools and what isn’t.

An honest appraisal of our past is crucial to the fight for racial justice. This webinar will host experts in migration and empire history, teaching, and campaigning to tell us:

– what’s missing from our curriculum

– the barriers to teaching these histories in our classrooms

– strategies for change

– how you can support curriculum campaigns

Chaired by Kimberly McIntosh, Senior Policy Officer, The Runnymede Trust, speakers include:

Prof Claire Alexander, Professor of Sociology, University of Manchester

Katharine Burn, Deputy President, Historical Association and PGCE Oxford University

Hannah Cusworth, Subject leader for History, The Charter School East Dulwich

Lavinya Stennett, Director, The Black Curriculum
