Students show racism the red card

Sir John Deane's celebrates start of Black History Month with show of solidarity

Sir John Deane’s Sixth Form College came together to show racism the red card to launch the start of Black History Month.

Students and colleagues wore red as a symbol of the college’s anti-racist stance.

Throughout this month we will be celebrating achievements and contributions of black people throughout history, and a specialist tutorial programme has been put together to educate students on anti-racism.

Other celebrations include music by black artists picked by the Diversitas committee and traditional African and Caribbean food options in the canteen.
