Black History Month

Black History Month in the UK occurs every year in October, created to celebrate, recognise, and bring visibility to the contributions and achievements of black individuals throughout British history. It’s about honouring and elevating this community of people who have faced systemic racism, discrimination, and marginalisation, but have still made significant contributions to British society in various fields such as art, music, literature, politics, and more. Black History Month is an opportunity to learn about the history, culture, and experiences of black people in the UK, and to celebrate their resilience and contributions to the country's development. It serves as a reminder to continue the fight against racism and inequality towards black individuals, both past and present, in the UK and around the world.
