Black History Month 2018

As Black History Month celebrates its 30th Anniversary

As Black History Month celebrates its 30th Anniversary, its Black History Month Magazine 2017 magazine and the leading and only community based listings portal www.blackhistorymonth.org.uk will be the central point of focus and lead the nationwide celebration of Black History, Arts and Culture throughout the UK in this very special Anniversary year.

Patrick Vernon OBE film maker, cultural historian and founder of Every Generation and the 100 Great Black Britons campaign will join us as Guest Editor.

We will look back at the birth of Black History Month in 1987, with contributions from key individuals and organisations and the social and political context of Black History Month being established.

We will discuss the impact of its legacy on Politics and Grass Roots, Activism in Gender, LGBTI, Young People, Arts and Culture, Fashion and in Music, Education, Local and Government, Civil Service, Housing, the NHS and Medicine, Voluntary Sector, Social Enterprise and Care, Science and Technology, Law and Public Life.

THE DIVERSITY  DASHBOARD
Progressive employers recognise that being forward-thinking on equality, diversity and inclusion in the workplace makes sense.

They recognise that employees from different backgrounds bring unique knowledge, skills and experience to their businesses.

The Black History Month Diversity Dashboard is a place where we promote those organisations and companies who are actively seeking to recruit from minority groups; regardless of race, gender, ethnic origin, disability or sexual orientation.
