Black History Month recognises black history and achievements and last year marked 30 years of Black History Month events in the UK.
Join us for a day of reflection and contemplation as we consider the path walked by those who came before; the first black British footballers, the first black British newsreader, the first black British model, the first black British MP, the first black British pilot. The list goes on and on and yet it’s still as important now as it ever was to acknowledge where we are and how far we have come.
Join us for an exploration into the magnificent world of you as a Black Person in the UK today!
Take time out to reflect on why you are where you are
Engage in visioning where you want to be heading.
