The Sacred Heart Language College

Year 9 History

Year 9 have been studying a new unit entitled, ‘Black People of America’. This looks at slavery, the American Civil War and the fight for civil rights right up to the modern day. At the end of the unit, the girls were asked to produce a piece of work for display on any aspect of the topic. Ellen-Marie Genower in 9T wrote the following poem, which brilliantly encapsulates the struggle of black people to achieve equality in the USA.
