BHM 2018

October is Black History Month and the University will again be celebrating the culture and histories of black communities with a comprehensive programme of events. Events are open to all and we particularly welcome members of the public from across the City of Birmingham to visit our campus and participate in the celebrations. Whilst our programme is predominantly focused on black history we have also included 'non-black' history items we believe may be of relevance and interest to those participating in our events.

A full programme of events is listed below:
