Earlier this month, we were fortunate enough to receive an early Christmas present from the Open Minds Project; a registered charity located in Brighton. Their mission is to educate everyone in the United Kingdom about the lives of Black people to foster a more robust, inclusive, and socio-culturally equipped educational system.
The donation of these books will allow school staff:
- To support and empower teachers to have a choice of a wider selection of books written by or about Black people for their lesson plan.
- To expand the narratives about Black people in the educational curriculum for a well-balanced education for every child in the UK
- To support school to explore literature that cater to the needs of minority groups and expand the worldview of the majority.
