Study shows UK school textbooks teach a highly simplified version of US civil rights movement

September 4, 2020

As children return to school in the UK, they will encounter a curriculum that still pays little attention to black British history or culture. This is despite an urgent Black Lives Matter movement and growing demands for a more honest reckoning with the racial legacies of Britain’s imperial past.
