I have been working on a regeneration proposal for 2 years and thought I would release some of it in segments for those interested in having a look.
I have chosen History as a segment
Awareness of History
More education of African history and more focus on promoting African and Caribbean
history to young people, and adults. The awareness of history can be taught from the
home, and in community groups. For example there are after school clubs run by black
people these are good avenues to teach this to black children.
The home is the first place children should be made aware of their history, parents who
are not educated, should be educated on their history and how this has affected them,
even if it is West Indian history from the Windrush or about the respective countries they
came from. This will provide an avenue for black people to work from and then this can
then be provided to children.
There are some organisations which provide lectures and talks on seminars, there may
be the opportunity for a resource to be put up in place for teaching parents and adults to
teach young people their history with free and paid for tool kits to facilitate this teaching.
The importance of learning African Centred history is for a greater sense of self, as part of
social regeneration, where people are then able to make informed decisions on
economically being able to provide for themselves and their community, through
employment of black people in their businesses and investing locally as well as physical
regeneration in regards to pride in their area cleaning their path and keeping their
gardens tidy, which may have a knock on effect with their neighbours.
The process of undertaking this:
- Educating Adults, who would like to educate their children on this history.
- Educating young people in black youth clubs and organisations around the local
- Educating young people in Saturday schools, after school cubs and home-
- A national, regional or another organisation providing online and paper tool kits
(paid for the paper tool kits) for other groups or parents to educate their children on learning about black history.
- More presentations based on Ancient Kemet (Egypt), Timbuktu, African Presence.
