Originally published: 2021
A history book with a twist, structured around a playlist of twenty eight songs, listed chronologically. Each song is a jumping off point for deeper social, political and historical analysis, tracking key moments in Black history, and the emotional impact of both the songs and the artists who performed them. The book redefines British history, the Empire, and post colonialism, and invites readers to immerse themselves in music and think again about the narratives and key moments in history that they have been taught up to now.

Book:I heard what you said:2022 Book
Author: Boakye, Jeffrey
Year: 2022
Language: English
Type: Book
Content type: Bibliography
Publisher: Picador
Physical or Electronic: Physical
Note: Before Jeffrey Boakye was a black teacher, he was a black student. Which means he has spent a lifetime navigating places of learning that are white by default. Since training to teach, he has often been the only black teacher at school. At times seen as a role model, at others a source of curiosity, Boakye's is a journey of exploration - from the outside looking in. In 'I Heard What You Said', he recounts how it feels to be on the margins of the British education system.

Author: Boakye, Jeffrey
Author: Chetty, Darren
Year: 2021
Language: English
Type: Book
Content type: Bibliography
Publisher: Wayland
Physical or Electronic: Physical
Note: Originally published: 2019 Masculinity is being discussed more than ever before, in a range of contexts. People talk about 'toxic masculinity', claim that there is a crisis in masculinity or argue that we need to 'reclaim masculinity'. There have always been many ways of being a man, and many people who have claimed that there are correct and incorrect ways of being a man. This important and timely book looks at the big questions surrounding definitions of masculinity, and discusses where ideas of masculinity have come from and the effects of gender stereotyping. The authors and contributors share their experiences of and perspectives on masculinity and invite readers to think for themselves about the issues involved.
