All UWE Campuses
UWE Students’ Union is proud to be celebrating Black History Month. UWE is extremely diverse and it is very important that we embrace our diverse community. Black History Month seeks to promote knowledge of Black History and experience, to share information across communities on positive Black contributions to British society, and to heighten the awareness of Black people in their cultural heritage.
There are multiple events happening at UWE to celebrate BHM, starting with the Nigerian Independence Day Celebration on the 1st October.
The event is organised to commemorate Nigeria's 53rd year of Independance on the first day of Black History Month. Presentations will be themed around how international students can apply knowledge gained from studying in the UK towards the development of education and other sectors in their home countries.
On the 24th October join us at the Octagon on Frenchay campus as UWE Bristol celebrate BHM with a special iCon lunch. I Have A Dream will feature spoken word and performance from writer, historian and storyteller Dr Edson Burton as well as open mic performances from UWE Students and music from the award winning UWE Gospel Choir.
Plus, UWE Students' Union and University of Bristol Students' Union are proud to invitte you to celebrate Black History Month through an amazing Love Music Hate Racism gig! Stay tuned for more details.
