Black History Month
This October, BlackHistory Month at
HCC brings another year of inspiring and engaging events each
hoping to entertain, teach and involve you in creating another
chapter in BlackHistory.
During BlackHistory Month, we remember and celebrate the
important people from the past and also who contribute to and help
our society today.
I've integrated BHM into HCC and hope you will embed this
important celebration into your teaching.
We hope both you and your students will join us in
celebrating BHM, show your support by making or putting up a
poster, get involved by performing at a dance
fusion event or even simply attend an event like one of the
great debates. Learn whist you attend.

Congratulations to all
entrants - 3 entries judged First Equal
recent Shakespeare in 400 Seconds competition 3 entries were
received and the judges, Adam Simon and Michael Marshall
Smith said"We admired the
narrative rigor and bold graphic presentation of Mariam Haji’s
HAMLET. We were struck by the emotional punch of JULIET AND
ROMEO, its filmic qualities, and its effective use of music. And
we also loved the way in which ROMEO AND JULIET captured both the
core beats of the story and also the *fun* of Shakespeare, for
both performers and audience — an aspect that is so often
forgotten. Each production successfully demonstrates why these
works have been enjoyed by so many people for so long, and why
they bear constant re-interpretation and reinvention.
makes it genuinely hard to choose an outright winner, however,
and as a result, after much discussion, we would like to award
1st Equal to these three pieces — and offer our congratulations
to everyone involved.”
