Unite the union celebrating black inventors and innovators
Where would society be today without inventors and positive creations of Black and Asian Ethnic Minority (BAEM) people in the community? BAEM people have contributed greatly to our society and their input is often unknown or not found in our education or history books.
This year, Unite highlights key BAEM inventors and innovators for the part they have played in shaping our society. Have you heard of Maggie Aderin-Pocock, Ron Headley, Dr Jane Wright and many more. Let’s celebrate our inventions by promoting social change throughout society – where black heroes are acknowledged, respected and celebrated. It’s time for inclusive education of black history in the UK curriculum and a well-deserved commitment to promote tolerance, fairness and justice ensuring black lives do matter.
