How do we reach a place where people’s histories are not marginalised, so there will be no need for Black History Month, or other special events that seek to promote equality?
What is the future of the role of equality events such as Black History Month? and how do we ensure that diversity is integrated in mainstream education and celebrations all year round?
This conference seeks to bring together experts, educators, statutory representatives and the wider community to move forward and ensure that mainstream education and celebrations are fairly representative of the diverse communities that contribute to our history and the society.
This is the closing event for Islington Black History Month 2013
Speakers and panellists include:
- Dr. Robin Whitburn and Abdullahi Mohamud discussing their ongoing work and new book on teaching Black history in schools Doing History Justice
- Tony Warner, Director of Black History Walks
- Patricia Lamour, Equality and education specialist and Co-Founder of GEEDA (Gender Education and Education Development for Africa)
- Kandace Chimbiri, author of Black History books for children
- Lela Kogbara Assistant Chief Executive at Islington Council (Strategy & Community Partnerships)
