In October 2020, we ran a month-long programme of activities in celebration of Black History Month, including interviews, articles and events.  

In June we hosted an online discussion called Forum on Race and Education as part of a new series devised by members of our community called What Really Matters. Bringing together eminent speakers from a range of backgrounds, the discussion covered the role of education in bringing about societal change in the UK, anti-racism in the context of white privilege and what needs to happen now to bring about racial equality? The black experience participants gave moving personal testimonies of their journeys and the online audience were able to ask questions.
