London Borough of Haringey Black History Month Programme
Black History Studies presents a day of film screenings, talk and activity at Hornsey Library on Saturday 1st October 2016 from 12pm to 4pm. Highlights include Black Cultural Market with stalls selling books, art, food, jewellery and much more, face painting and children activities.
12.30pm - Film documentary “The Importance of Black History Month" (35mins)
In this riveting and engaging new documentary, award winning filmmaker Nosa Igbinedion teams up with young people from Islington, and experts in the field to explore the importance of Black History and whether it is under-represented in mainstream education and the impact of that in a multicultural Britain.
Nosa Igbinedion notes Black History comprises the history of multiple nations, people and ethnicities so how can it be comprised into one month and under the umbrella Black? So is Black History really World History? And if so should school curriculum’s be more inclusive to reflect the globalised world and multicultural society we live in today.
This would be followed by a discussion with participants on the importance of Black History Month
2.30pm - Black History Game - Who's Conscious - The board game designed to test your knowledge of achievements made in sport, music, entertainment, history, arts and culture by people of colour!
