Black History Month takes place in October and celebrates the culture, history and achievements of Britain’s African and Caribbean communities.
For many years, Bristol has gone to great lengths to celebrate Black History Month and 2017 is no exception. There is a varied programme of events planned across the city this October, including music, exhibitions, theatre, workshops, walks, talks and more!
Bristol Mayor, Marvin Rees, says:
“Colleagues from across the city have been working hard to put together an exciting and thought-provoking range of talks, films and exhibitions reflecting the vibrant diversity we have here in Bristol.
These events are all part of a mature city understanding its past and informing its future, allowing us to better understand why the world is the way it is. I would like to congratulate all those who have been working hard to organise the wonderful educational events taking place this October, and I hope you enjoy them.”
