What is Black History Month?
Black History Month started in the UK in the 1980s. It is about celebrating the history and culture of African and Caribbean people.
For much of history this is a story that has not been told, it has been left out and hidden or just focused on the horrors of the African Slave Trade. Black History Month is a way of digging deeper and looking closer so that the full and amazing stories of Black History are known and remembered.
Get ready to dig deeper, look closer and think bigger!
