We have sold 650 copies of our teaching pack, Isatou, Chloe and You, to primary schools throughout the UK. This compares the lives of Isatou, an 11-year-old in the Gambia, with Chloe, a nine-year-old in Marlborough. It comes with a sound tape, video and colour photographs. We are about to embark on a pack for the RE syllabus in secondary schools comparing the impact of Islam on family life in Gunjur with the impact of Islam on a Muslim family in Swindon.
We agree with Miss Shah that it is only by looking at our own, often very impoverished, lives and understanding some of the positive features of the lives of people from other cultures that we can address the issue of racism through learning and the abolition of ignorance.
