‘Britain had an Empire that at its height brutally suppressed one fifth of the worlds population; killed millions of people, from the Mau Mau tortured by colonialists to the 3 million people they starved to death in Bengal in 1943; and justified its actions with a scientific racism, the offspring of which sustains racism today. But this shameful past is shocking in its absence on the pages of school curriculums.’
