Black History Week

October is recognised as Black History Month and Hollywood will be spending time finding out about people from history as well as modern times.  The montage here shows just some of the black people who have had an impact on the world we live in today.  There is also a display in school with lots of details and thought provoking questions. Some of the children will be presenting an assembly to the school about Black History, keep an eye on here for more details.

Black History WeekHow many of these people do you know?  They are all well known for something that they achieved.  Choose one and see if you can find out:

·    Their name
·    When they were born (and died)
·    Where in the world they came from
·    What they achieved or became famous for
·    How they changed the lives of others
