Black History Month: Films & Movie Evenings

Friday, October 21

Nights at the movies! We would like to invite you to a series of movie nights celebrating Black History Month in Plymouth!

About this event

Black History Month was founded to recognise the contributions that people of African and Caribbean backgrounds have made to the UK over many generations, Over the years Black History Month has expanded to include the history of not just African and Caribbean people but black people in general. This year we are putting together a whole month of events to celebrate and raise awareness of Black History in Plymouth. These events help increase the visibility of the diverse communities, business owners, organisations and networks that are in Plymouth and help our friends, neighbours, partners and ourselves become leaders in addressing diversity issues.

We have partnered with The University of Plymouth to screen a series of movies and homemade shot films to be watched!

Make sure to grab yourself a ticket before they are all gone.
