EDIJ Resources

Welcome to our Black History Month resources. Here you would find ideas and resources of what you can do in your schools to celebrate BHM. You will also find a blank table which you can use to plan BHM in your schools. The aim is that BHM is celebrated in all aspects of school life, from curriculum to pastoral. This is a great opportunity for all heads of years, head of subject and phase lead to play an active role in courageous advocacy by supporting the EDI lead and SLT in celebrating BHM.

We value your feedback to help us improve our services.

Black History Month (BHM) takes place every year in the month of October in the UK. BHM presents an opportunity for children, young people and adults to learn more about Black history.

The theme for Black History Month 2023 is ‘Saluting Our Sisters’.

BHM 2023 is a momentous occasion to recognise and celebrate the invaluable contributions of Black Sisters to the British society. There are numerous ways by which all can engage in BHM 2023. Some examples include: reading literature written by female authors from a global majority heritage (GMH), listening to podcasts by female artists from a GMH, and using more diverse visual representations in posters and presentations. You can even support your children and young people to create their own BHM podcast or newsletter focused on ‘Saluting our Sisters’. Educators and church leaders can plan, deliver and participate in lessons, bible study, book clubs, movie nights, workshops, messy play, and arts and crafts with a focus on valuing our sister. Hosting celebratory events geared towards creating greater awareness and positive interaction with Black history is another great way of engaging with BHM 2023. The possibilities and ways of engagement are endless!
