Race is currently high in the news agenda. The Black Lives Matter movement re-awakened society's awareness that racism remains an unresolved blight. Our concept of ‘society’ is nurtured in classrooms that continue to become more diverse. Yet, the Black Lives Matter movement highlighted the continued challenge of racism faced by educational institutions. Join the EGI for our latest Race Matters Lecture: Racism in British Schools, with Dr Sheine Peart. This lecture explores the lived educational realities of Black students studying in British schools
