Black History Month: Mary Seacole
October is Black History Month, an annual commemoration of the history, achievements, and contributions of the Black British community. It is an important opportunity to not only highlight key moments in Black History and celebrate historical and current Black figures but to also challenge racism and think about why the visibility of minority ethnic groups is crucial.
Each resource forms a curriculum link to show how Black figures have influenced every aspect of society. This free worksheet explores the life of Mary Seacole, a British-Jamaican nurse and entrepreneur who set up the British Hotel to provide care during the Crimea War (1853-56).
