Black History Month

In the United Kingdom, the month of October is dedicated to African and Caribbean history and is recognised as Black History month. We use the month to remember the important contributions and achievements of African, Caribbean, and in a larger sense, black people  across the world in the past and present.

This has proved to be a successful way of informing the youth about elements of our history that are heavily neglected and encourages them to productively reflect on the past.

As diversity, in all its beauty, continues to flourish and grow in our world; it highlights the need to celebrate the histories that make up the collective account of our world. Black History Month recognises the importance of reflecting and celebrating the monumental contributions that black people have made and uses them as a platform for future growth.
