Black History Month 2021 | Highcliffe School

Black History Month 2021

We are celebrating Black History Month at Highcliffe. It’s so important for us that young people understand and respect diverse histories, cultures, and traditions. #ProudToBe

What's happening at Highcliffe this Black History Month?

• This month we will be focusing on celebrating Black History,  Arts and Culture across the school. 

 • In tutor time, and in lessons, students will be participating in activities linked to the topic of Black History,  Arts and Culture. 

 • We are also holding a whole school creative arts competition, celebrating this year’s theme of ‘Proud To Be’.

“Inspired by the 2020 Black Lives Matter events, the theme for this year’s Black History Month celebrations is ‘Proud To Be’. 

The campaign aims to make Black History Month 2021 personal and unique to individuals, families and communities, focusing on how we’re all making history all the time in our own ways, as well as the contributions and achievements of Black people throughout history. 

It’s been a challenging time for many Black and Brown people, with so much in the media about racism, inequality and injustice. We wanted the theme of Black History Month 2021 to focus on celebrating being Black or Brown, and to inspire and share the pride people have in their heritage and culture – in their own way, in their own words. 

Black Lives Matter means people being able to live life to the fullest without having to compromise who they are. Everyone deserves the right to be Proud To Be everything they are and want to be in life.”
