Learners and staff got their creative juices flowing even more than usual throughout October, by drawing pictures and displays to help celebrate Black History Month. 

Black History Month was first launched in the 1980s as a period for people to educate themselves on British history and challenge racism.

Learners studying Sports and Public Services at Pleasley Landmark drew posters and wrote information about their chosen famous icon. 

Tutor Sharnnie Wagstaffe said: “Learners had the choice to either design a poster or draw their famous icon, whether that was in sports, or music or actor and actress etc. We then had a discussion about why they chose that person.”

Displays from other R.E.A.L sites included the fantastic ‘Black Spies Matter’ board, made by learner Kai, which included pictures of black actors in spy films.
