Black History Month

Thursday 28th September

It is that time of the year again when we look forward to celebrating Black History throughout the month of October.


The theme for Black History month is dedicated to Black women as we celebrate our sisters and honour them for the contributions they have made to society. At CAHN we have brought into focus the sisters of the Windrush to recognise the 75th year that many of our Black women came from the Caribbean to Britain , many of these women are heroes and often forgotten and not celebrated.
