Black History Month

Black History Month is held every year in October. It promotes the history and contributions that Black people with origins in Africa, the Caribbean, North and South America and other Black communities around the world have made to Cambridge and the UK.

Events around the country include history and heritage, arts and culture, news and ideas from a range of communities. It is an opportunity to share activities and experiences.

Black History Month was first celebrated in the UK in 1987. We have celebrated it in Cambridge since 2005.

Black History Month 2022

We are gathering and sharing talks and lectures, articles, plays, films, and interviews to archive and celebrate Cambridge’s Black heritage.

You can also follow Cambridge Black Heritage on Facebook to share and discuss ideas with the organisers and contributors. 

Visit the Black History Month website to find out more about it and about national events.
