Black History Month
Black History Month is an annual celebration of the achievements of Black communities and the remembrance of Black history across the world. It was first celebrated in the UK in 1987 and takes place throughout October. It is an opportunity to raise awareness of Black history, traditions and contributions through celebration, events and education.
This Year’s National Theme is : Time for change,action not words
