LONDON — As the sun rises on a crisp summer day in London, a group of white kids and their families gather in a park, playing tennis or just hanging out.
The kids in this group of English students at a private school in London are doing something that is not new to them: taking an interest in history.
This year’s group is made up of the students who went to a historically black high school in the city and came to be known as the Black History and Culture Association.
At this time of year, the Black Lives Matter movement is in full swing and many of the groups organizers are taking the opportunity to raise awareness about police brutality, institutional racism and the systemic inequality that exists in America.
As this group has grown in size, it has become an important part of the Black community.
One of the main reasons for this is that they have a history of activism.
“I think a lot of our students have a deep appreciation for the history of the African American community and have been inspired by it,” said Alex Hulme, a professor at the University of Cambridge and author of “A Black History.”
“They’ve been encouraged by history, by the history they see themselves in, and by their own experience of racism and discrimination.”
The Black History Association has created an online curriculum that students can take as they go to classes, and they’ve even created a group website that is designed to help students connect with the group.
There are so many people that are interested in history, from black Americans in the UK to the Black people of America.
They have been very active in helping students learn about the history, which is important because it informs them on what they can do to help fight racism and inequality in the US, Hulmes said.
They also help students understand that history has consequences for how we feel about ourselves.
It is very important for them to be involved in history because they are making the choice to do something that can make a difference,” said Joanna Luscombe, a member of the group and a history major at the London School of Economics.
She said that it is important for the Black students who are studying in the group to not only be active, but to be proud of their role in making history.”
If you’re white, you think you know what’s going to happen and what’s wrong.
That’s not true.
You just have to learn to be critical and see that it’s not about what’s right and wrong.
They are just learning about it, and that’s really important.” “
It’s really about being involved and being a part of history.
They are just learning about it, and that’s really important.”
A recent survey by the U.K. Department of Education found that only 9% of white students reported having been taught about race, gender or sexuality.
And there are many students who feel they have been discriminated against in schools and colleges in the United States.
According to the Department of Justice, Black students are less likely to receive the same education as their white peers, and Black students and students of color are less than 20% of the college students.
While the students in this particular group are doing their part to make history a little bit more accessible to students of all races, there are also those who do not feel like they are doing enough.
For example, Hylme said, there is a group that focuses on the history and culture of the Caribbean, and one of their members is a former student.
Luscombe said that they do have some successes in the past, and she is hopeful that this group will continue to grow and provide opportunities for other groups of students.
“I know that if we are going to have a conversation about race in this country, then we’re going to need a larger, broader, more diverse group of students,” she added.
