Colo­nial­ism classes

Warwickshire Telegraph - - NATIONAL -

CHIL­DREN should be taught more about the legacy of the British Em­pire, colo­nial­ism and the slave trade, Jeremy Cor­byn will say.

The Labour leader is call­ing for schools to give pupils a greater aware­ness of the role played by black Bri­tons in shap­ing the coun­try’s his­tory.

Mr Cor­byn will to­day set out plans for an Eman­ci­pa­tion Ed­u­ca­tional Trust aimed at ed­u­cat­ing fu­ture gen­er­a­tions about slav­ery and the strug­gle to end the trade.
