To mark Black History Month, we wanted to explore what our youngest are still learning about and some of the active steps being taken by some to challenge the black history we learn. Hearing 6 year old Munira and 12 year old Miski will melt your heart, so prepare for some ‘awwwwws’!
We also hear from Kyle, an inner city London teacher, sharing his reflections on teaching black history and some of the reactions and comments his pupils make. Alongside Kyle, Mustafa tells us about his ‘Beyond Bilal’ lecture series which sheds light on notable black Muslim figures who are often overseen in the wider community. We had an opportunity to chat to them both on their experiences growing up and what they often associated with Black History Month. We hope you enjoy the episode! Leave some comments and do subscribe!
