On Saturday 3rd May 2014, Black History Studies took part in Leah Salmon’s first ‘Teaching Our Own: Black Homeschooling Fair’ at Chesnuts Community Centre in Tottenham.

It’s becoming apparent that the education system isn’t working as well as it should. Class sizes are increasing, governments are pressuring schools, schools are pressuring teachers, teachers are pressuring our children and our children of African or Caribbean descent are achieving lower grades than other children in many areas, without their cultural greatness being taught to them. We need to make a change and it can start by us TEACHING OUR OWN.

This event was aimed at those who want to take their child out of school and teach them full time or for those who want to know what you can do with them at home around their schooling.

Black History Studies had a brilliant time at the fair. We congratulate Leah Salmon and her power team for a highly successful event. Leah Salmon is an inspiration as she homeschools her children and is a successful mumpreneur. At the event, there were interesting and informative speakers, a buzzing market area and good vibes. My princess is knackered from running around non-stop with her friends.

Picture with my young entrepreneurs Nature of Nafasi by Nature and his sister Kellise selling greeting cards and books. Our future!


Well done to Mark Simpson for delivering a interactive presentation on the benefits of homeschooling.


Well done Leah Salmon and I am looking forward to future events. One Love!
