It’s almost mid October, so you probably know by now that this month we’re celebrating Black History Month. We'd like to think that this month is just a reminder that we should always look back at our shared black history that shaped the society, heritage and culture we enjoy today. This month is a reminder to celebrate the here and now, bring communities together and glance into future possibilities.
In partnership with our African Caribbean Society and our BME Officer, we have a range of events planned this month that you can join in. From a BAME Poetry Corner, to a Colonial Discourse Talk by Dr Terri Ochiaga or a Games Night with the African Carribean Society - we’ve got you covered.
Whoever you are, we recommend diving into our resource page to learn more about the #blacklivesmatter movement, how you can help, and how to be an ally.
Oh and, don't forget to listen to this great Spotify playlist - put together in celebration of Black History Month by our Union staff member - Victoria Agbontaen
