This petition is to call for British Black History to be made taught throughout schools in the UK. Children  All over the country are taught that black history is American slave trade , Rosa parks & Martin Luther King , when there is so much more to learn and understand. it is a shock that it is not part of our education system when the United Kingdom is inclusive of 1.85 million of a total Black minorities. that’s almost 2 million children not growing up knowing the knowledge and information of their own history.

It is only fair that children be educated on the history of poc and make it part of the school curriculum. The history of POCs have been ignored and swept under the rug in our country and it is not right, people in our country are not being taught about the racism that occurred here .
If racism is taught it can be untaught.

As well as teaching black history, it is important to teach black culture (this will include all races and culture, including Asia). If we are taught different religions in our RE classes, we can be taught different African and Asian cultures in our history classes. By teaching our children at a young age, it will bring awareness to the oppression, discrimination and lack of protection that these community face in their day to day life in the hopes of making this country a safer community for everyone, no matter their skin .
