Friday's topic - 3/7/20

We have looked in recent weeks at black people from the past who helped shape our country, but today I want to focus on a present day individual who continues to set unbelievable standards in his chosen field…

Lewis Hamilton is the reigning world champion in Formula 1 motor-racing. Not only that but he is second on the all-time list of world titles and could potentially equal or surpass that total in the years to come. Over the last few weeks, he has spoken out on behalf of the Black Lives Matter movement and shared his own experiences of racism and the lack of black representation in motorsport. This has led to his team (Mercedes) changing their car colour to black for the next season and starting an initiative to encourage and support more ethnic minorities succeed in this area. Why not find out a little more about him from the attached document?
