United Kingdom Black History Month-1st to 31st of October

The celebration of Black History Month in UK started in London in 1987, seventeen years after it began in the United States of America.  Now it is  celebrated is all over the UK, the purpose of this, is to celebrate the achievements as well as the contributions of black people in the nation and the world.  A vital aspect of it is to educate all people and all ages about the rich and diverse culture of blacks in the community.

During this month you will find schools setting up special classes and events, so too are Caribbean and African societies  in universities.  Museums  and galleries hold exhibitions and shows during this period.  Criticism is hotting up against local councils who are changing the Black History month to other various forms of celebrating diversity in their boroughs.  Dawn Butler, MP  and David Olusoga the historian and broadcaster have spoken about the importance of keeping the event as a unique one for black people and condemned the councils who are rebranding Black History Month.  Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn has also announced his proposals to increase the amount of Black History taught in schools along with History of the British Empire, slavery and colonialism.
