Black History Month

27th October 2020 / Posted by CRP Team

October marks Black History Month in the UK, giving people the opportunity to share, celebrate and understand the impact of black heritage and culture. It was first celebrated in the UK in October 1987, and was the initiative of Ghanaian analyst Akyaaba Addai-Sebo, who had worked as a co-ordinater of special projects for the Greater London Council. Black History Month has never been more relevant than in 2020. CRP’s accountable body Westminster City Council have been celebrating Black History Month with a programme of virtual events, including a The WCC Archives and Black History Studies and The Cultural Book Club. Black History should be celebrated this month, and every month.
