Kamari Romeo is the founder of the Black History School.
He graduated from the Royal Central School of Speech and Drama in 2013 with a BA in Drama, Applied Theatre and Education. He then went on to achieve an MA with distinction in Creative Producing in Dec 2019.
He has since worked with children and young people in youth centres, primary and secondary school settings. Kamari has come full circle producing the Black History School as a response to the Black Lives Matter movement in June 2020.
In addition to encouraging anti-racism, Kamari wishes to dismantle the notion that Black history is only connected to slavery, offering more positive and authentic representations of our history from the past and present.
