Music, spoken word, and public lectures on Rosa Parks, Malcolm X and Martin Luther King — Black History Month at The University of Nottingham will explore different elements of black art, history and culture.
A full programme of events, taking place both on campus and in the city, will be complemented by the University’s Black History Month blog. This will give event info as well as featuring academic comment from staff and students.
Highlight events from the programme include:
All events are free and open to the public. For a full events programme and information on how to register for individual events, have a look at the poster gallery on the blog.
Val Watson is the Chair of the University’s BME Staff Network. She said:
Black History Month gives us an opportunity to celebrate black culture at the University and beyond. We’ve got a really varied programme this year, and want to encourage as many people as possible to attend events or read the blog.
“Black history and culture are often still seen as somehow ‘separate’ from the mainstream. Hopefully, people will discover or learn something new in October that will change the way they think and start to address this.”
