Black History Season 2020

Young, Black Power

This Black History Season we will be exploring and celebrating all the ways African and Caribbean cultural heritage influences our day to day lives.

2020 has seen a series of devastating events, drawing attention to the daily challenges Black people across the world face as a result of systemic racism*. 

These events have sparked outrage and heartache across generations, but in particular has fuelled a generation of young activists and protesters.

This Black History Season and beyond we are committed to creating safe spaces for our young people to learn, discuss and challenge racism, whilst celebrating the many ways Black communities positively contribute to society.

Starting from 1 October  we have an exciting programme of events and activities looking at the history and contributions of African and Caribbean communities, helping us to understand the present through our past.
