Black History Month 2020: TrilbyTV Highlighting Black Pioneers TrilbyTV

TrilbyTV has just released new content showing Black Pioneers via our Content Catalogue in recognition of Black History Month 2020!

The month-long event originated in the United States in 1970. As a result of its popularity, it has now received recognition from governments across the globe. The UK celebrates Black History Month in October.

Our Black History Month content inspired by CRMKB

Back in 1993, at the start of Trilby, we worked with our good friend Tarsem Singh Cooner (@Akali65) on the production of a CD-ROM 💿 (remember those!) all about Cultural Roots.

The aptly named Cultural Roots Multimedia Knowledge Base or CRMKB vol. 1 was the first in a series that explored different diasporas – the spread or dispersal of people from their homelands. It was a great educational resource which focused on giving young people more knowledge of their culture. Moreover, it would make them feel proud and realise a sense of self-identity and of course educate others in the beauty of difference and diversity.

Volume one of CRMKB visited a broad set of themes including; People, Places, Beliefs and Lifestyles. In short, it included the founders of the Sikh faith, the geography of the Caribbean, the language Punjabi and the Black pioneers. While hundreds of CRMKB CDs were sold to schools and families, work and lives took a different direction. Consequently, this meant that the series wasn’t continued, unfortunately.

Black Pioneers content for Black History Month 2020

We’ve re-imagined the Black Pioneers from CRMKB v1 for Black History Month 2020 and are giving this content to the TrilbyTV community to add to your signage. The individuals featured on our slides are from all over the world, as well as a few British pioneers.

Each time the content loads you’ll see one of 40 inspirational individuals. They appear along with a brief description of their pioneering achievements. We hope this will encourage pupils to research and subsequently explore more about these key figures in global history.
