Black British History
Lots of Black history content is focused on the United States, or African American individuals. As our team is based in the UK, we also want to celebrate forgotten and neglected names in Black British history.
For example, have you heard of Walter Tull, one of Britain’s first Black professional footballers and the first Black officer to lead white British soldiers into battle? Or Pauline Henriques, the first Black female actress for British television and the first Black female Justice of the Peace?
If the answer is no, you’re not alone – but as we can all agree, these names deserve to be remembered. Tuntimo makes this possible for all children, everywhere!
