Take down statues and monuments in the UK that celebrate slavery and racism: Who are these men and what do we do with their statues? In the short space since the statue of Edward Colston went into the river, we have seen a sweeping wave of changes – from colleges, to councils to cultural institutions – various authorities are suddenly taking action to remove or rename monuments to slavers. We welcome this development and we recognise this would not have happened with the speed it has were it not for the BLM protestors in Bristol, so we offer our full solidarity. Glorifying colonialists and slavers has no place in a country serious about dismantling systemic racism and oppression: https://www.toppletheracists.org/

I am part of the team producing an ambitious retrospective one-hour documentary for BBC2, which is being executive produced by Steve McQueen (12 years a slave). It will focus on the concerted fight by Caribbean parents, educators and activists (starting in the 60s), to save their children from being unfairly forced into schools for the “Educationally Sub-Normal”, highlighted by Bernard Coard’s seminal text. The documentary will also make the links explicit and implicit, between the struggles of the past and the challenges of today, regarding the teaching of black children in the British education system. If you know anyone who was apart of the movement, attended these schools or any parents who prevented their children from attending these schools please pass on my details and tell them to contact: beya@roganproductions.net
