Highlights from our best Black History Month yet

October 30th, 2015

Black History Month 2015 officially finishes on 31 October, and what a month it’s been!

A range of educational, entertaining and sometimes challenging events have made this year’s celebrations our best yet. Schools and departments from across the University, local groups and experts came together to offer public events including lectures, film screenings and live music.

But don’t take our word for it – read our final blog post for a summary, highlights and thoughts on the month from Val Watson, Chair of the BME Staff Network, Vincent Wilson and Claire Henson.

Finally, a huge thank you to all involved. Plans for Black History Month 2016 start now, and we would love for you to be a part of this. If you have any thoughts to share or want to get involved directly, please contact Claire Henson (Equality and Diversity Co-ordinator) or Val Watson (BME Staff Network Chair).
