Over the next few weeks, we will be raising money for The Black Curriculum. Each donation of £25 will give you the chance to win one of our silver or vermeil pieces. You can donate as many times as you like, and each increment of £25 will increase your chance of winning. 100% of proceeds will be donated to The Black Curriculum, who’s mission statement is as follows:
“The Black Curriculum is a social enterprise founded in 2019 by young people to address the lack of Black British history in the UK Curriculum. We believe that by delivering arts focused Black history programmes, providing teacher training and campaigning through mobilising young people, we can facilitate social change. Our programmes are for all young people aged 8-16 and aims to equip young people with a sense of identity, and the tools for a diverse landscape. We are working towards changing the national curriculum and building a sense of identity in every young person in the UK.”
It is important that we keep talking about issues relating to BLM and systemic racism. We have chosen to support The Black Curriculum, as the work that they are doing aims to tackle this wider systemic issue. Black British history is largely absent from the UK curriculum, and The Black Curriculum is working hard to make it mandatory across the UK. They offer packages for schools, providing teacher training and certification, giving teachers the tools and knowledge to engage with diverse student bodies and include Black history in their curricula. Additionally, the Black Curriculum offers school workshops and assemblies, which are tailored to each school, covering topics such as Art History, Migration, Land and the Environment, and Politics and the Legal System.
