“Part of disrupting and dismantling pre conceived ideas of learning and pedagogy requires people to engage in a new way of thinking, intrinsically interrogating existing values and belief systems.”

Professor Jason Arday, University of Cambridge

“CARGO is a perfect piece of activism, a positive intervention in the education sector, in a backdrop of culture war politics.”

Robert Del Naja, Massive Attack

CARGO is led by Lawrence Hoo, a poet and eductaor and Charles Golding filmmaker and creative director. From their own experiences in school and from their observations today, they understood that there are large parts missing from the History that is taught in schools across the UK. These missing parts include:

The perspectives of individuals of African and African Diaspora descent.

Recognition of the resilience, contributions and visionary leadership of individuals of African and African Diaspora descent.

CARGO Classroom resources are made so that these stories could be included in the History that is taught in schools at Key Stage 3. The lessons use poetry, film and illustrations to help pupils engage with the lives they are learning about. The lessons have been designed so that they can either be taught in a sequence, or experienced individually.

The creation of the CARGO Classroom resources would not be possible without the valuable contributions of an incredible team of experienced teachers and creative professionals.
