Black History Month

Black History Month was originally founded to recognise the contributions that people of African and Caribbean backgrounds have made to the UK over many generations. Now, Black History Month has expanded to include the history of not just African and Caribbean people but black people in general.
It first started in the United states where it was known as African-American History Month and was first celebrated in the United Kingdom in October 1987; the United States celebrates it every year in February while the United Kingdom celebrates it every year in October.
This year the theme and campaign are “Proud To Be” to encourage Black and Brown people to share who they are proud to be. Which is also a way to celebrate the amazing diversity and achievements of Black and Brown heritage in the United Kingdom and around the world.
