OUR HISTORY INFORMS OUR FUTURE

 

There is a reason we put together this project. The education system as it stands does not do enough to show young black people the history of the city they live in and how this city has been shaped by black people across time and space. We view historical education as a mental health intervention, because when you know yourself, you know your strength. By stripping Black history away from the curriculum, you strip away an opportunity for a young person to form their identity. We want you to know that your history leaves clues, it leaves lessons and it leaves examples of how excellent black truly is. It provides you with an example of how excellent you are. 

 

OTR Bristol is a mental health social movement by and for young people aged 11-25 living in Bristol and South Gloucestershire. Project Zazi is a part of OTR. You can find out more about Zazi here.
