Oxford University Press have released a short film made in partnership with the History Squad and D'Overbroek's College which explains why we have Poppy Day. Made specially for their Kerboodle package, OUP thought it fitting to release this film free for everyone to view on YouTube.

Explore Black History month, with a presentation-based workshop on Slavery. Combining history with a bit of geography, this workshop explores how people were captured, enslaved, transported and sold at various markets and also focuses on the reformists and the abolition of slavery. Pupils handle the manacles and chains used by the slavers and we also cleverly recreate the tight conditions that were suffered on board the slave ships to give students a better understanding of the suffering inflicted for the sake of profit.
