Black History Month falls in October every year and is aimed at celebrating the culture, origins, histories and achievements of African and Caribbean communities and their diaspora.
This month we are highlighting the power of feminism within the black community, showcasing the existing talents of our students from these backgrounds; from spoken word poetry to dance and fashion. We have recognised the significant rise in male mental health issues and as a result we will be addressing black male mental health with the focus to empower our students to reach their full potential and become future leaders in their respective fields.
To enhance the existing knowledge of African and Caribbean heritage, we will be showing films and also providing unique tips for creative entrepreneurs to thrive through workshops by other creative artists. We are also taking pride in our FRO and CURLS, with a natural hair showcase.
Having recognised the talent of our student content creators, we are launching the ‘Black History Month Magazine’ which covers work from our very own students – so make sure you get our own copy!
We cannot resist emphasising our love for food and the distinctive food options that make us who we are, so we will be hosting an African and Caribbean Street Food Festival!
We are “honouring our ROOTS and creating our FUTURES”
We welcome ALL students to engage with as many events highlighted below. See you all there!
