<aside> ℹ️ Black History Month is a time to reflect on the diverse histories of those of African and Caribbean descent, taking note of the achievements and contributions to the social, political, economic and cultural development of the UK.
Black History Month is a time to come together and hopefully learn lessons for the present and the future. It’s a time to honour the commitment to learning and standing united against racism. It’s a time to reclaim history and re-imagine how our shared history will be told in the future.
A continued engagement with history is vital as it helps give context for the present. We're not born equal in opportunities.
Black History Month exists to remind us that to drive change we must learn about and learn from the history of systemised abomination, oppression and marginalisation.
It is an opportunity to understand black histories, challenge stereotypes and go beyond stories of racism to spotlight and celebrate achievements of people racialised as black.
