Event description
Croydon BME Forum are working with Croydon Council ,CRYSTAL PALACE F.C and PALACE FOR LIFE FOUNDATION to celebrate Black History Month 2019

About this Event

Croydon BME (black & minority ethnic) Forum is the umbrella organisation for Croydon’s Black and Minority Ethnic voluntary and community sector; engaging people, building capacity, and promoting equality and cohesion.

Croydon BME Forum are working with Croydon Council , CRYSTAL PALACE F.C and PALACE FOR LIFE FOUNDATION to create the kick off event to celebrate Black History Month in Croydon.

The theme of this year’s Black History Month is “RID THE STIGMA”.

R.I.D THE STIGMA (Representation. Identity. Diversity) will provide a focus on Black heritage and how young people feel they are seen negatively in the community, and want to change that by ridding the stigma and focusing on their true representation, identifying who they are and incorporating the diversity of all the different cultures and heritage to rid the stigma around young Black people.

This will be reflected in an exciting range of events that will take place across the borough and include opportunities to discover historical events through performance, music, storytelling and song, as well as the opportunity to take part in thought-provoking discussions.

This is our 6th year celebrating Black history month acknowledging those who have gone before us in history to make marvellous contributions to the world, as well as celebrating those who continue to do so in order to inspire a new generation of leaders.
