Black History Month
Nottinghamshire 2018 What is Black History Month?
Black History month is a celebration of Black history in USA, Canada and the UK. It began in the 1920's in the USA, where it is celebrated in February, initially as a Week.

It became a month long in the early 1970's and has now become an established part of the social calendar.

It was first celebrated in the UK in 1987 in London before spreading over the whole country. It is celebrated in the UK in October.

The aim is to celebrate the place of black people in our history.


Why is it important?
Black History Month is designed to counter the bias in our society towards white people and specifically towards the way that history is told from a white of view. It is also intended to challenge the assumption that black people have not made a significant contribution to society.
