Whilst October is a great time to learn about the wider subject of Black history, it’s crucial for us to teach our kids that it’s not just about one month of the year. Exploring Black heritage, culture, arts and history should be a year-round activity.  Learning about the experiences and contributions of all people, especially those who are less represented in the history books, is the only way that we can become an inclusive society.
