Black History Month 2023 is a momentous occasion to recognise and celebrate the invaluable contributions of black people to British society.
Black people have always been at the forefront of social justice movements, fighting against oppression and paving the way for change. However, despite their countless contributions to society, the achievements of black women, in particular, have too often been overlooked or forgotten. That is why, this year, we will be celebrating the exceptional achievements of black women.
The theme of ‘Saluting our Sisters’ highlights the crucial role that black women have played in shaping history, inspiring change, and building communities. This year’s celebration will showcase pioneering black women who have made remarkable contributions to literature, music, fashion, sport, business, politics, academia, social and health care, and more.
Moreover, Black History Month will feature a national poetry competition and an education pack, providing students with opportunities to learn about and celebrate the contributions of black women throughout history. The competition encourages young people to express themselves creatively and learn about the diverse experiences, struggles and triumphs of black women.
Reflecting the diversity of schools and organisations across the country, we have chosen to use a range of lesson plan formats to mirror this difference, and to provide more schools with an opportunity of an immediate point of familiarity, which will enable some schools to teach these lessons without further modification.
Additionally, we are excited to announce the national school’s poetry competition as part of Black History Month 2023. This competition provides a platform for students to express their creativity and explore the experiences and contributions of black women throughout history. We encourage schools to participate and submit entries from their students for a chance to be recognised for their talent and to inspire others.
