We are pleased to be celebrating Black History Month which is between the 1st – 31st October. It is very important to us as a University to recognise both the talent and creativity of Black staff and students, and also to raise the challenges around race equality that all Universities are facing, and to make this a part of our wider University conversation.
‘Black History Month is the annual celebration and commemoration of moments in history, achievements and contributions that Black people have made. First brought to the UK in the 1980s, Black History Month was initially introduced to the country by a member of the Greater London Council, Akyaaba Addai Sebo. Since 1987, Black History Month has been celebrated annually in the UK, to eradicate discrimination and encourage racial equality.’ Black History Month UK: why is it important and why is it celebrated in October?
To celebrate Black History Month, the University and Students’ Union will be hosting a range of events over the month to focus on different contributions, challenges, and stories of people of Black and ethnic minority backgrounds. The following events have been arranged:
Events are open to all staff and students from across the whole University.
