Celebrating Black History Month

This October (2021), we are taking part in Black History Month to recognise contributions made by people from the Black Community to every aspect of our lives.

Black History Month has been marked in the UK and around the world for more than 30 years and aims to address unfairness and celebrate the achievements of the Black Community over the years.

The theme for this year is Proud To Be allowing people to share their stories of what they are proud to be. The campaign aims to make Black History Month 2021 personal and unique to individuals, families and communities, focusing on how we’re all making history all the time in our own ways, as well as the contributions and achievements of Black people throughout history.
