New Shaftesbury School Podcast Shares Powerful Words Of Black Writers

A thought-provoking project to encourage Shaftesbury School students to consider the experiences of black writers is moving online as a podcast.

During their recent open mic sessions, pupils shared powerful words of black journalists and authors.

Teacher Susan Rancourt and colleagues started the events in response to the Black Lives Matter movement. She says this has been ‘one of the most moving experiences’ of her teaching career.
