Paying 'Black Tax' in Nottingham

Duration: 02:07

Volunteers at a Nottingham supplementary school for children from African Caribbean Communities introduce the concept of the ‘black tax’ as they celebrate their 30th anniversary. Shiefton Supplementary School was created to address a concern that black children underachieve in mainstream schools.
In this extract, the group’s chair, Angela Reid and head of the parent’s group, Debbie Macintosh, tell BBC Radio Nottingham’s Reya El-Salahi why giving back or doing ‘black tax’ work is so rewarding.
