Black Women in Greenwich

Explore the hidden stories of three Black women spanning from Tudor England to the 19th century. Learn about the challenges they faced and decisions they made. 

These workshops feature three Black women associated with Greenwich history — Catalina of Motril, Phillis Wheatley, and William Brown — bringing to light their stories within the local context of Greenwich as well as national and international history. This engaging, hands-on workshop is free to schools and community groups.

The day includes facilitated morning workshop, a 30-minute lunch break, and a facilitated site tour. Students will be able to explore the site and spaces of the Old Royal Naval College including the Clore Learning Centre, the Visitor Centre, and the famous Painted Hall.

All activities are designed to build collaborative communication skills and cover areas such as history, geography, oral skills, creative writing, art and design. Our workshops are facilitated by professional educators who adhere to the standards and goals set within the National Curriculum. Sessions can be booked by KS3+ school as well as community groups.
