Hannah Hockin - Students' Union President
This Black History Month, we’re 'Saluting Our Sisters', focusing on the role of Black women in shaping history, inspiring change, and building communities. Alongside the Black and Global Majority Students Community and our African-Caribbean Society, we’ll be spotlighting Black students on campus – celebrating successes from the past, present and future through our events programme and awareness campaign. From an exhibition on the work of Black students at the library to a Zine Making Workshop led by sweet-thang zine to a Black History Month Open Mic Night, there are plenty of opportunities to celebrate this October. If hitting the dancefloor is your thing, join us for a boogie at Medicine for Afro-Heat or get down to the SU Venue for Flawless Black History Month - don't forget to wear your colours!
We have an incredible campus community here at Royal Holloway and we want to shout about it! Over the course of Black History Month, we'll be showcasing the work of Black students and we want you to get involved! Whether you run a business, write poetry, create pieces of art, love social media, or would be up for telling us about your story - get in touch! Drop us an email to be featured on our website and the SU Instagram account, we can't wait to hear from you and amplify your voice.
