Black History Week

18 October 2019

This week for Black History Year 2 have explored how the treatment of black people has changed in sport. We looked at the stories of black sports stars from the past to the present, including Alice Coachman, Jesse Owens and Allyson Felix and saw how points of view changed over time. At the end of the week we learnt about and re-enacted the 1968 Olympics protests, where Tom Smith and John Carlos did the black power salute whilst they won their medals. We each thought about whether we would join in the protests or whether the risks would be too great.
