Celebrating Black History

Tuesday 13 October 2020

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 smiley
