Black History Month
As you all know, this month is UK Black History month, when we celebrate and take pride in the past and present black people, all around the world.
Our world has grown, from being segregated and sexist, to being more open and welcoming, where people have the opportunity to feel comfortable in their own skin.
There is still a way to go until all people in this world feel equal and safe, but we take our time this month to think about the many role models; Martin Lutherking Jr, Barack Obama, Rosa parks, who inspire us to carry on fighting for equality and equity.
The Stephen Lawrence committee hope you have a safe and happy month and think about our role models and what they have done for us, and how we as citizens of this world can honour them.
