Africa in the UK Curriculum
Our passion and core purpose is to promote Africa in the UK. But how is Africa represented in the UK curriculum? Where are the African and Black British voices in the English Literature syllabus? How do we decolonise the History curriculum?
We are currently developing a set of learning resources drawing on African and diaspora literature that can be used flexibly in schools to support the teaching of literature and bring joy to the reading and writing curriculum. These resources will celebrate African and Black British writing for children and young people and offer talking points, performance ideas, and creative writing activities to deepen and enhance learning.
We are also exploring opportunities to decolonise the History curriculum, and bring the histories of people of African descent to the surface in primary and secondary schools.
