Black History Month.

October 2018

As the political climate across the globe continues to intensify, we must continue to look to our historically marginalised communities to lead their revolutions. Black History Month serves as an opportunity to reflect upon the history of the black community in the U.K. and beyond. We can take this time to look back at a legacy, and to learn from each event which has passed, both good, and bad.

The events held during this month have been organised by BAME students, and are their vision. A variety of events throughout the month will hope to cover key areas of black history, from Windrush to Gospel. A campus which recognises the historical struggles and victories of a community is one which can move forwards into a better future for black students, citizens, and people.
