In the 1960s Black communities in the UK mobilised against the discrimination and inequality their children experienced in mainstream schooling, setting up Black supplementary school projects where the deficits in educational provision could be rectified. Almost fifty years of Black supplementary schools, organised on a volunteer basis by parents, teachers, churches and community groups, are brought to life in this book. This is the first comprehensive account of the Black supplementary school movement. It charts the historical development of the movement; explores the different ideologies that emerged; examines the importance and conceptions of Blackness; and looks at the relationship to mainstream schools and the prospects for the future of Black supplementary education. It is essential reading for everyone who is interested in overcoming racism in education and in sociological and policy responses to racism generally. All those involved in improving the educational experiences of discriminated against groups should read this book.
