Black History Month

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.

 In October, your Students’ Union will be celebrating the UK’s Black History Month. With a mix of student-led activities and union events.The Uk’s Black History Month is an annual celebration of the achievements, history and contributions of Black people in the Uk and recognition of the injustices the community still face.


Raveena Francis, your Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic Officer has been hard at work collaborating with a number of bodies to bring about an exciting line up of events for BHM19! 

Raveenas role is to represent the BAME community while challenging and supporting the university in its racial equality practices.
