Family Learning Event

The Hawthorns played host to a Family Learning Event as BAME families reflected on the barriers they faced during their upbringings.

Held under the Our Albion banner, the gathering was an opportunity for parents to tell their children stories about what life was like for them when they were younger and learn how things are today for their offspring.

"I thought it was great to spend an hour and a half talking about how it was when I was growing up," said Tirath Singh Dhatt.

"You realise how much things have changed because for my children things are, very different to how they were when I was their age."

An initiative delivered by The Albion Foundation, Our Albion leans heavily on the story of the Three Degrees to explain the barriers that ethnic minorities have faced in the past.

Cyrille Regis' daughter, Michelle, was on hand to take part in the evening and appreciated what she saw.

"The conversation between parents and children and just opening up that conversation of change and where we've come from and what still needs to be done, I think it's really important for adults and the children," she said.
