Black History Month

Black History Month…is a time for people to come together and hopefully learn lessons for the present and the future.'

‘It’s a time to honour the commitment to learning and standing united against racism.’ 

‘It is also a time to look forward and celebrate the here and now – and the future possibilities.’ (  


At Earlswood, we are embracing Black History Month as a starting point for exploring, discovering and celebrating Black history, heritage and culture.  

Here are some books you can share with your children at home to promote discussions.
