What is Black History Month about?

Black History Month is open to participation by everyone and is ideally developed, delivered and managed as an educational and historical awareness experience by Black people and should be shared by everyone as world history.

Initiatives take place across the UK with voluntary groups, local authorities, NHS services, museums and libraries often taking a lead in planning events. There is always a rich programme of events: concerts, historical walks, theatrical productions, comedy and panel debates are a few examples, but all have history as an integral part of their purpose.

Past Present Future

 

B.M.E @ KeeleFacts:

  • Over the past 5 years the University has experienced an overall increase in numbers and proportions of BME students, with the current representation of 29.5% of students from BME backgrounds. This compares to a sector average of 20.2%.
  • Proportionally fewer UK BME students achieved a first class degree (8.8%) compared to UK white students (22.3%) at Keele.
  • Keele has an overall BME staff profile of 5%, which is lower than the comparator averages but is broadly consistent with the demography of the local area. Within the academic group, the proportion of BME staff is 8.6%, which is likely to be based on the wider recruitment pool for this group (regional, national, international).
