Black women have been at the heart of social justice movements throughout history, bravely battling oppression and advocating for change. However, their accomplishments have often been overlooked or forgotten. This year, we humbly request your support for Black History Month 2023, as it presents a significant opportunity to acknowledge and celebrate the outstanding achievements of black women by honouring the matriarchs of movements and saluting our sisters.
Our chosen theme, “Celebrating our Sisters / Saluting our Sisters / Matriarchs of Movements #WEMATTER,” emphasises the vital role black women have played in shaping history, inspiring change, and building communities. The commemoration will feature trailblazing black women who have made incredible contributions to literature, music, fashion, sport, business, politics, academia, social and health care, and more. Through the Black History Month Magazine and our online platforms, we aim to amplify their voices, share their stories, and inspire future generations to carry on their legacy.
To make this celebration truly impactful, we kindly request your support. This year, we have increased our distribution from 50,000 to 60,000 copies, reaching an even wider audience. These copies will be distributed through targeted channels such as ASDA, Tesco’s, Sainsbury’s, and other supermarkets. Moreover, they will be available at Black History Month events across the UK, as well as public and private sector organisations, community groups, charities, and other institutions.
Black History Month brings the entire African Caribbean community together, providing a unique opportunity to connect and convey your message effectively. We invite you to join us alongside respected journalists, commentators, scholars, historians, community leaders, and artists, who will engage in insightful discussions, debates, and reflections on those who have made a real impact on our community. Together, we can weave a powerful narrative of black history in the arts and culture.
In 2023, your support is of paramount importance. By increasing our distribution, we can ensure that more individuals have access to the stories and achievements of black women. Alongside our print distribution, we have expanded our online presence through our website, www.blackhistorymonth.org.uk. The online package includes a client user login, enabling your participation in a 12-month online campaign featuring company and community profiles, online recruitment banners, event listings, social media campaigns, recruitment videos, and press coverage. Your involvement will contribute to broad reach and engagement with our audience, making a lasting impact.
Furthermore, we take great pride in introducing the Black History Month Diversity Dashboard. Forward-thinking employers recognise the significance of equality, diversity, and inclusion in the workplace. By actively seeking to recruit and promote individuals from BAME communities, they embrace the unique perspectives, skills, and experiences these individuals bring to their businesses. The Diversity Dashboard serves as a platform where Black History Month Diversity Champions can connect and make a difference in these communities.
