THE YOUTH TE FORUM DEBA

For [young people] who are bombarded with negative images of our community, the Huntley Archives provides a personal, positive record of our community’s activities and achievements in London during the 1970s and 80s. Like the Sankofa bird, the Huntley Archives looks back in order to guide our future progress. The Friends of the Huntley Archives at LMA (FHALMA) is the group that organises the annual Huntley conference. Clyde Williams, FHALMA Trustee

“We are better educated than our parents!”

This year’s conference will be pulling the Youth Forum into the very heart of the main conference day. After the morning Groundings Sessions and coffee break our young people will be having a debate with us. They are saying, “We are better educated than our parents!” and they intend to challenge and explore this by discussing Availability and Access to education; What’s happening in our schools; The gender issue; The class issue and the family.
