Racism. True Stories

Students will be taken on a creative and interactive journey engaging with the true stories and life experiences from people who have encountered these themselves.

The discussion around racism has gained widespread attention following the recent Black Lives Matter movement. Yet, for some teenagers racism may not be an issue they have experienced growing up making it harder to relate to:

“It’s not actually that bad around here.”
I’m not doing anything wrong”
“It doesn’t really affect me

These are common thoughts in relation to racism amongst teenagers. Perhaps understandably, because it can be difficult to relate and make changes to behaviour when you haven’t heard true stories from people from different backgrounds.

This is why our storyteller shares true stories about themselves and those from others in their year group. Students can develop their understanding and learn from those experiencing racism in everyday situations. 

Together we will find out what they can change and what their role is in society.
