Henn Warwick - Students' Union President
This year, Black History Month is focused on the National theme of Proud To Be. This theme aims to strike a personal and reflective tone to individuals, families and communities allowing deep and meaningful conversation to be had.
The resurgence of the Black Lives Matter movement last year stands as a reminder to us all that racial injustice is still prevalent in our society and we each need to do what we can to educate ourselves on these issues. It is important to confront the challenging questions raised about race and racial inequality as well as showcase the immense achievements of Black people both past and present within the Royal Holloway community – is there something you are proud of? Or would you like to share the pride you have for others in your community?
Black History Month here at RHSU is brought to you by our Sabbatical Officers, societies and student groups who have worked to bring you a great range of events and activities. We are brave and committed to shining a light on the diversity of our Black students so make sure to check out the full programme which will be released on the week of 4 October and along with a month-long blog series recognising our Black community.
Want to get involved? Please contact the lead officer, Henn Warwick by emailing President@su.rhul.ac.uk.
