Black History Month
Posted by Kevin Hicks on 22nd August 2014

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.

As ever, our sessions are flexible to suit your timetable and class sizes.  For availability, take a look at our online calendar at
