LHS Stands with Black Lives Matter
LHS with Black Lives Matter in the fight against racism and injustice
At LHS, we are proud of our diverse student community, with over half our students coming from black, Asian and minority ethnic backgrounds. We educate our students on Black History in both History and PSHCE lessons, through a range of topics and hold regular assemblies on discrimination.
However, we know we must continue to work hard to ensure we are making a positive difference in highlighting and challenging discrimination.
Relevant topics studied in History include:
Minority groups in Medieval England
Empire Troops in WW1
The abolition of Slavery
The black pioneers of abolition, resistance and rebellion
The role of black Americans in the Vietnam War
US Civil Rights and protest movements
The persecution of minority groups under the Nazis
Jazz culture of the 1920s
The US Civil Rights Movement
Issues facing minority voting behaviour in the US
