Black History Month: ‘Proud To Be…’ (Virtual Attendance)

Wednesday 27 October 2021

With Black History Month in full swing, we’d like to take this crucial opportunity to celebrate, recognise and value the contributions and life experiences from individuals and groups from Black communities across the UK.


Inspired by the official BHM theme ‘Proud To Be’, throughout this virtual and live event we will explore this important topic and delve into the Black experience from various aspects and viewpoints.

During the session, Sandra Pollock OBE, Founder of Open Mind Training & Development Ltd, The Women’s Awards, and Inspiring You CIC, will be joined by a host of influential keynote speakers and panellists as we encourage learning, reflection, and taking action. In addition, Manchester based writer and producer Keisha Thompson has been commissioned to deliver a bespoke spoken word performance during the event, which will no doubt execute a powerful message.

Our panel session will feature:

  • Chloe Davies, UK Black Pride Volunteer & Head of Social Impact, Lucky General
  • David Villa-Clarke BEM, Founder of Project Volunteer & CEO, Aleto Foundation
  • Ifraah Samatar, Educator, Author, Mental Health & Social Action Campaigner
