The Mandela Supplementary School in Camden, North London

Education is in our hands, let us hold hands…

Education is in our hands, let us hold hands
It’s the least we can do, in taking a stand…
Our children’s future, depends on what we do
Considering our history, and what we have come through…

And still we rise, against barriers and borders, put up
Our ancestor’s proof, we are made of good stuff…
As people of colour, let our genius shine
Knowledge, wisdom, together, entwined…

Education is in our hands, let us hold hands
Inspiring our children with a universal plan...
Bringing together intergeneration
Promoting self-determination, across our nation…

Throughout the passage of time, we have held hands before
Created great civilizations, inventions and much more…
Continuing a legacy, rich in tradition
Reflecting our value, for what we have consistently given…

Education is in our hands; let us hold hands, once more
Creating a global education, the World has never witnessed before…

Education is in our hands, let us hold hands…

OLAUDAH EQUIANO’S BEST -SELLING BOOK: THE INTERESTING NARRATIVE
 
The Equiano Society has recently published a 2020 version of The Interesting Narrative that gives readers a better understanding of how Equiano presented his book in March 1789 and it follows the Narrative more closely than other versions. This version is easier to read, with fewer lines per page, and other detailsHis book is considered to be among the ‘100 best English language non-fiction’ books of all times (The Guardian, 7 August 2017).   The newspaper also asserts, “The most famous slave memoir of the 18th century is a powerful and terrifying read and established Equiano as a founding figure in black literary tradition.”
 
The new 2020 VERSION of the book has Volume I and Volume II of his March 1789 edition. The long ‘s’ (‘f’) often used in eighteenth-century books and other writings has been replaced with the modern short ‘s’. The 1789 edition, Volume II, has two pages marked ‘169’ and The Society has changed these to 168 and 169, respectively. Furthermore, in Volume II, page 193, Equiano wrongly wrote: Musquito Shore, June 15, 1767, but The Society has correctly inserted the year 1776. The 2020 version closely follows Equiano’s text in the British Library’s 1789 two volumes that include the same number of pages, design and size (smaller than A5) of Equiano’s March 1789 Narrative.

Greetings Family,

Nationally there are 30,000 vacancies and I'm tired of hearing that "we don't apply for the positions". I will be doing some work with the National Governance Association (NGA) but this network will be independent and made up of past, present and future governors so there is a single place that schools can come to for professional black governors and where training can take place.

Please spread the word as I'm creating a database where more information will be shared.

Anyone interested should send me an email with 'National Black Governors Network' in the subject bar.

info@educationgovernancesolutions.com

Many thanks 
Sharon Warmington
