Your Voice

Black History Month


October

Black History Month is a chance for us to appreciate, remember, and commemorate black history and culture, and to enjoy living in a community that on the whole, is welcoming and diverse. The events hosted during this month are designed to provide a platform for a variety of different voices and experiences, from those seeking artistic expression to those conveying critical thought. It’s a time for us to enjoy and appreciate diversity.

We must also however acknowledge the contemporary issues facing the people of colour community - from the controversy over the NFL, to Confederate Statues, to post-Brexit fallout, we must all take a stand against modern day racism and xenophobia. So enjoy the events this month, but also remember that across the world, there are many issues yet to be solved.
