In the Black Fantastic: Black History Month Ideas
Curated by Ekow Eshun, In the Black Fantastic, was an exhibition at the Hayward Gallery (London, UK) of 11 contemporary artists from the African diaspora, who question our knowledge of the world.
In July, as part of Apple’s Festival of Learning, exhibition curator Ekow Eshun gave a special insight into In the Black Fantastic to an online audience of teachers and educators around the globe. Eshun sat down with author and educator Jeffrey Boakye to discuss some of the important themes of the exhibition.
During the course of UK Black History Month in October, I will be posting extracts from this conversation to provide starting-points for teachers looking to ignite discussion and inspire ideas for talking about racial equity and justice with students. Even if you didn't make it to the exhibition, you can still engage in these important conversations and concepts with your students, using In the Black Fantastic as a starting point.
