Event:

Today, Black History Month is well embedded within the British cultural calendar. This audio-visual assisted presentation will provide the story of how it came into being in Britain, with contributions by some of the people who were at the forefront of its introduction. It aims to clarify the purpose of BHM, highlight some of the positive impacts, and pose the question: how do we move forward with Black History Month 32 years on? A little known Wandsworth connection will also be revealed.

Part of Wandsworth Black History Month.

Kwaku is an author/editor of a number of books, educator specialising in black music and African British history, and editor of BritishBlackMusic.com
