Musical Truth virtual visit with Jeffrey Boakye

Musical Truth: A musical journey through modern black Britain by author and teacher Jeffrey Boakye (and illustrated by Ngadi Smart), is a history book you can dance to. Structured around a playlist of 28 songs, each song tracks key moments in black history and the emotional impact of both the songs and the artists who performed them.

From Linton Kwesi Johnson to Stormzy, Jeffrey invites children to think about and reconsider events they may or may not have learned about in school. Join us for a thrilling and musical journey that will excite even your most reluctant readers. To listen to the playlist and watch exclusive content, visit the Musical Truth playlist.
