BHM 2022

October is Black History Month and the University will again be celebrating the culture and histories of our Black communities with a comprehensive programme of events. This year our programme will be based around the UK and the US Black History Month themes: Time for Change: Action Not Words and Black Health and Wellness. We welcome contributions on either theme or combining the two.

You can get involved in many ways. If you are not already a member, consider joining the staff Race Equality Network at the University.  If you are feeling inspired and have an event you would like included in this year's programme, you can submit it using the BHM submission form.
