Black History Month


Presenting a Black History Month like never before.

Thanks to the digital space in which many of this year's events will reside, we will be collaborating with other students', unions and groups across the UK to celebrate & educate throughout Black History Month (October 1st - October 31st 2020). 

Keep an eye out for this year's fully-fledged & fantastic #BHM2020 events developed by our BAME Students' Officer Max Kafula, over on Facebook. Throughout the month, we'll be exploring topics including White Privilege, The Black Lives Matter movement, the black student experience, the British Empire and intersectionality.
