Black History Month 1/11/21

Year 12 Criminology students took part in our annual Black History Month Assembly. The focus was on Mary Seacole, her compassion, bravery and medical skills. There were many presentations encompassing various aspects of the observance including an explanation of this year’s theme #proudtobe, the history of Black History Month and its importance. The highlight of the assembly was one student’s speech about his favourite hero, Muhammad Ali. The student spoke about Ali’s boxing prowess, intelligence, bravery and passion for racial equality. In celebrating the contributions of Mary Seacole, Muhammad Ali and other notable African and Caribbean figures, we are reminded to play our part in overcoming racial inequality. 

Hating people because of their colour is wrong. And it doesn’t matter which colour does the hating. It’s just plain wrong.” - Muhammad Ali
