Black History Month
October is Black History Month (BHM) which has been celebrated widely for many years honouring the achievements, culture and the history of black people.
There is a long standing commitment to continue offering the community a vibrant selection of events and activities through programmes that provide insight into the history and culture of the African, Caribbean and diaspora communities.
In the boroughs of Kensington and Chelsea and Westminster, Black History Month has been recognised for over 30 years with a month long programme of exciting and inspirational events and workshops. Every year throughout October people, schools, libraries, groups and organisations host events and get involved with the celebration of black history although many would now be virtual or socially distanced events in this current Coronavirus environment.
Here's just a few of the events you can get involved in across London.
