Black History Month

October is Black History Month📚

The idea behind Black History Month is to recognise the contribution and acheivements of those with African or Caribbean heritage🏆 It’s also an opportunity for people to learn more about the effects of racism and how to challenge negative stereotypes❌

People from African and Caribbean backgrounds have been a fundamental part of British history for centuries⏳ However, campaigners believe their value and contribution to society is often overlooked, ignored or distorted👋

Most schools still teach a history curriculum which focuses on traditional events and the achievements of white figures🏫 . Black History Month gives everyone the opportunity to share, celebrate and understand the impact of black heritage and culture🙌

Black History Month is also celebrated in the community in places such as museums, care homes and workplaces🏢 A broad range of topics are covered, from Britain’s colonial past to migration and music🎵
