British Black History

England, Scotland, Wales


From King John’s royal court in the 13th century through to the premiership football pitch, this exciting KS2 workshop takes your pupils on a time-travelling journey through the annals of British Black History.

Created by award-winning writer, Marjorie Morgan, and led by a One Day drama facilitator, this History-rich session invites your pupils to discover the many ways in which Black Britons have shaped the nation we live in today. Royal trumpeters, Roman soldiers, Olympic swimmers, racing car drivers… the list goes on! Join us to celebrate the contributions of British Black people and explore those stories not always represented in history books.

*This workshop includes a free follow-up Resource Pack for your school. Please get in touch for more information.*


**You can now join us online and browse an exciting digital library of educational videos for primary pupils, including Black History workshops. Click here to visit Uno.**

"One Day created something truly wonderful in just one day. Children learnt about Black History Month in a creative and interactive way. The children performing enjoyed the day and some of our 'quiet' children came out of their shell! The whole school really loved the performance and have since gone away and researched their own Black History/Diversity project. A great day! Thank you!"

Assistant Head Teacher
