Year 4 Assembly - Black History Month

Elmhurst School for Boys

16th October 2015 | Key Stage 2

On Wednesday Year 4 lead Assembly to celebrate Black History Month for the school and parents. The boys told us about why the people started celebrating Black History Month in America, when we started celebrating in Britain and about few Influential people.

In 1926 Dr Carter Godwin Woodson, an American historian felt that history taught in American schools did not recognise the achievements of Black Americans. So he started Black History Month to celebrate their achievements.

Since 1987 we have celebrated Black History Month every October in Britain.

This week, 4F reminded Elmhurst of all the reasons why people gain a place in History. The role of History is to us -where we must still go and what we still must be.

Influential people from George Crum, Lewis Latimer and Chris Ofili were celebrated and inspired us to imagine what we can ALL be in the future.

So we realised that if we work hard…and dream harder! We can be anything!
