Labour's Diane Abbott to award black academic achievers


A STAR-STUDDED line-up will celebrate high academic achievements and successes of black children at The House of Commons tonight.

The annual London Schools and the Black Child (LSBC) Awards was set up ten years ago by Diane Abbott MP, who has continued to campaign on the issue of poor attainment for black and minority children in our schools.

In its eighth year, the prestigious ceremony will be hosted by a number of role models from the fields of media, business politics and entertainment, including ex-England and Tottenham footballer Sol Campbell, current Children’s Laureate and author Malorie Blackman, actor and comedian Edie Kadi, and singer V V Brown who has also been requested to perform on the night.

Abbott said: “The LSBC awards are a chance to celebrate the academic achievement of young, black children who are faced with many challenges including negative stereotyping and especially difficult challenges outside of school.”
