Melody Triumph and Millie Mensah from The Black Curriculum are passionate about sharing stories and raising awareness around Black British history. They have a series of brand new books for children aged 8+, entitled Legacies: Black British Pioneers, Migration: Journeys through Black British History and Places: Important Sites in Black British History.
This event will inspire everyone to ask questions and continue their learning about Black British history.
The Black Curriculum is a social enterprise founded in 2019 by Lavinya Stennett to address the lack of Black British history in the UK curriculum. The organisation is committed to changing the national curriculum and building a sense of identity in every young person in the UK. It delivers arts focused Black British history programmes, teacher training, and campaigning, in order to facilitate social change.
Melody Triumph is a writer and teacher based in Kent and London. She has a passion for history, literature, music, languages and education. Melody has a keen interest in educating and creating through writing and so writing this book is only the beginning of the work she wants to do in the future. She spends her spare time delving into the arts and humanities, reading, going on walks and spending time with others.
Millie Mensah is a visual designer working with charities, education providers and non-profit organisations. Millie worked within youth justice for 8 years, supporting vulnerable young people and their families. With an interest in history, politics and society, plus a purpose to raise awareness, writing this book for Millie has been a wish fulfilled.
This is a schools event and is also open to home-schooled children. You can reserve tickets by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org or purchase tickets online.
