Black History Month

Black History Month takes place throughout October each year in the UK. It marks a month of awareness and celebration of Black history, culture, and community, and seeks to empower and represent BME peoples throughout the UK.

At University of Wolverhampton Students’ Union (UWSU) we are extremely proud to be celebrating Black History Month once again, and to have this opportunity to celebrate the diverse and multicultural student body represented here.

For 2019, our Diversity Officer is collaborating with the University of Wolverhampton as well as societies such as Afro-Caribbean Society (ACS) to bring an amazing line up of events to recognise and celebrate Black History as well as helping educate the wider community in the different cultures, foods and traditions within African and Caribbean nations.

About Black History Month

Black History Month isn't just about celebrating the history of BME communities; it's about bringing attention to their diverse and richly varied cultures too. During Black History Month here at UWSU, we want to shine a light on the diversity of culture we have here within our BME student communities and educate students about the incredible spectrum of people and traditions found right here at our university and beyond.
