ONYX Youth Hub Black History Month 2021

Friday 8 October - Friday 22 October 2021

Our Narratives Yet Explained (ONYX) Youth Hub is hosting a series of online events for Black History Month.


In 1926, Carter G Woodson established African Caribbean celebrations in America where Black History Month is still celebrated each February. After visiting America in the 1970s, Ghanaian-born Akyaaba Addai Sebo, a special projects officer at the Greater London Council, founded the UK’s version of Black History Month in 1987. Black History Month occurs annually in the UK during the Month of October.

In October 2020, ONYX Youth Hub delivered a series of events to celebrate and educate young people on the importance of Black History Month. These events were successfully designed and facilitated by ONYX Youth. This year we are back to highlight to Black history, achievement, and the barriers that we continue to overcome. A continued engagement with history is vital as it helps give context for the present.


Our Narratives Yet Explained (ONYX) hub is a youth-led organisation that works to empower Black youth aged 11-25 to take an active and positive role in transforming the society they live in.

This event is being organized by a community of Black youth Advocactes, who are passionate about social change and aim to create a safe space for those who want to be connectors, influencers, and change makers.

We are delighted that we have exciting keynote speaker, Rutendo to share their insights and reflections to strengthen our collective voices and inspire change.
