Black History Month – “Saluting our Sisters”

Sunday, 1st October 2023 - Tuesday, 31st October 2023

Various venues

Price varies by event

Black History Month 2023 is a momentous occasion to recognise and celebrate the invaluable contributions of black people to British society. Black people have always been at the forefront of social justice movements, fighting against oppression and paving the way for change. However, despite their countless contributions to society, the achievements of black women, in particular, have too often been overlooked or forgotten. That is why, this year, we will be celebrating the exceptional achievements of black women.

This year, Black History Month will feature a national poetry competition and an education pack, providing students with opportunities to learn about and celebrate the contributions of black women throughout history.

There are also many events, locally and nationwide. See the Black History Month listings to find events near you throughout October and beyond.
