In March 2014 the CRRE hosted the first ever national ‘British Schools and the Black Child’ conference.

Attended by hundreds of parents, educators, and students, the conference was the latest in a historic series of events organised by Diane Abbott MP.

The Birmingham meeting marked a decade of achievement for the ‘London Schools and the Black Child’ (LSBC) campaign and was the first meeting in the series to be held outside London.
