Gumley House School FCJ

Black History Celebration Evening 2017

This year’s show was particularly powerful and moving. We dedicated the show to the victims and survivors of the Grenfell Tower fire, especially the young. As a West London school, there are members of our school community who were directly affected by this tragedy as they knew residents of the tower or live close by and witnessed the events of that evening. We also paid tribute to Khadija Saye, the emerging young artist who was emblematic of what was lost that night, as well as celebrating the youth and talent in our school community. And, we were inspired by Benjamin Zephaniah's words from his poem, Carnival Days: 'We dance like true survivors. We dance to the sound of our dreams.' The girls responded to our themes through poetry, speeches, song, dance and huge adorned portraits of inspirational Black figures. The packed hall were moved to tears and joy many times during the evening, not least our special guest, multi-award winning comic, actor and writer, Angie Le Mar. Angie spoke of Gumley being unique in responding to Black History month on such a scale and with such creativity and power. It was a night to remember.ter a description for this photo album.
