Black History Month
First celebrated in the UK in 1987, Black History Month (BHM) is held each year in October, with a programme that promotes the history and contributions that African, Caribbean, Asian and other BAME communities have made to Cambridge and the UK.
In 2017, we are celebrating the 30th anniversary of Black History Month in the UK. Events around the country include history and heritage, arts and culture, news and ideas from a range of communities. We have celebrated Black History Month in Cambridge since 2005. It is an opportunity to share activities and experiences.
This year’s programme is the most varied, with the greatest number of partners, that we have ever seen in Cambridge. There is drama and story telling, music and film, lectures and social events, history and current affairs. There are events for young and old, and many are free.
Please look at the programme and decide which activities that you would like to come along to. Booking details and contacts for more information are included for each event. Please let your friends and family know about the events, everyone is welcome.
