Make Black British History Compulsory in Schools

I think this would really help to defeat racism in the UK and I wish I'd been taught about it at school. I knew nothing about our overseas territories or the Windrush ships until the scandal a few years ago. And we should all know about our links to slavery and Colonial history/ The British Empire - we should be told what we did, who we exploited, what land we stole etc. I recently watched a documentary about the Chagos Islands - where the islanders were 'evicted' by the British government in the 1960s so the US could build a military base!
