Black History Month was founded to recognise the contributions that people of African and Caribbean backgrounds have made to the UK over many generations, and 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 are to 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.
Join us for a series of movie nights hosted by DBI, Nudge community Builders and Plymouth University to start conversations all through Black History Month.
