Black History Month October 2006

Black History Month (BHM) was established in the United States of America by the Harvard educated African American scholar Dr Carter G Woodson in 1926. In the UK it was first celebrated in London in October 1987 which coincided with the Marcus Garvey celebrations. Interest in BHM soon spread to other cities like Bristol, Leeds, Manchester Nottingham and Birmingham. Since 1997 BHM has gained national profile and the Commission for Racial Equality has become involved in co-ordinating a national events programme. Broadcasters such as Channel 4, the BBC and local media now include programmes focused on BHM in their October schedules. The aim is to promote the rich diversity of black people, black culture and the historical presence of black people in Britain.

During Ramadhan, this is followed by an extended daily prayer (Taraveeh) during which one thirtieth of the Qur'an is recited every day, thereby completing the recital of the whole of the Qur'an during the 30 days of Ramadhan. The Taraveeh prayer will take up to 2 hours every night, to complete.
