Black Lives Matter – Educate Yourself

On May 25, 2020, George Floyd  a 46-year-old black man, died in Minneapolis, Minnesota after a While Police officer knelt on his neck for almost nine minutes. Another in a long list of shocking examples that racism is still rife in today’s world. We feel that it is important both for those wanting to help with the black lives matter movement and for those that are wanting to understand the issues black people face. You can listen to our show detailing, the struggles that come with this and being black in the entertainment industry and life in general. Which is something that presenters Marcus Bronzy, Funk Butcher and Dev regularly discuss ‘off air’.

There are a number of ways that you can educate yourself such as checking out or taking a look at this amazing website that has links to loads of different Google Docs which help you understand the Black Lives Matter movement and why Black People are protesting.

Such as: explaining systematic racism, 75 Things You Can Do For Racial Justice, Reverse Racism is a Myth, Anti-Racism for beginners & even more educational resources

How technology is giving hope to millions of African children who have never been to school.

Kakuma Refugee Secondary School, which gives hope for the future.

The Instant Network Schools programme, which is part of ongoing initiatives by the Vodafone Foundation are expanding to help more than five million children in sub-Saharan Africa who are marginalised and excluded from traditional education.

The Foundation supplies devices, data and tablet-based teaching programs and online education across Kenya and Somalia as well as other African countries and is working with the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) to provide both primary and high school education to children in refugee camps.

Beyond the educational programme in the camps, children and teachers will now be provided with access to online learning materials with zero data charges to encourage maximum use of the online lessons through a new Instant Schools for Africa initiative.
