Closed petition Make it compulsory for Black and POC UK histories to be taught in the Welsh education curriculum.
Britain -including Wales- benefited from colonialism and slavery for centuries. This needs to be represented in the curriculum.
The British Empire has often been glamorised and the global impact of Britain’s colonialism downplayed. This has been reflected in the content taught.
There needs to be real and significant change. The legacies of slavery and colonialism have very real impacts on BAME communities across Britain today, and the Welsh education system needs to recognise this.
