October is Black History Month!
The theme for this year is #ProudToBe and invites Black and Brown people of all ages throughout the UK to share what they are proud to be. For example, Proud To Be Black, Proud To Be Brown, Proud To Be Black & LGBTQ+, Proud To Be Me.
As well as celebrating Black people’s achievements throughout history, this month is also about sharing how Black History is personal to you and how we all make history all the time.
The media is so often about the struggles that Black and Brown communities face due to racism, inequalities and injustice, but this month is a chance to focus on celebrating being Black or Brown. So, Black History Month UK is asking you to share the pride you have in your culture and heritage so that we can see the richness and diversity that Black and Brown communities bring to the UK.
