Black History Month: Storytelling

Thursday, October 21

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.

DBI has partnered with Real Ideas Organisation for a night of storytelling and arts & crafts for kids, families, friends and everyone looking to meet people from their local communities.
