Black History Month

Since 1987 Black History Month has been celebrated every October in the United Kingdom.   The event is formally recognised by the Government and highlights the contributions Africa and African peoples make to the economic, social and political landscape of London and the wider UK.

Check out this link for further information. Some of you may have met Dominick at ‘Sparkle’.
