Primary Workshops for Black History Month: Online and In-Person!
Black History Month encourages schools around the country to shine a special light on black history, legacy and achievements throughout the entire month of October. A time for reflection and celebration, Black History Month offers us the opportunity to delve into our collective past and share stories that have not always gained their rightful place in history textbooks.
Looking for creative ideas to kickstart your celebrations? Our trio of drama, dance and music workshops are a great place for primary schools to begin!
