What is Black History Month?
Black History Month happens every October here in the UK, and began as a way to remember and highlight the actions of important people in the history of the African diaspora. While this is still a core theme of the celebrations, Black History Month has also become a way to raise awareness of the need for cultural diversity more generally, with important motivational and keynote speakers using their platforms to shift the perspective of audiences and relate their stories to the struggles of marginalised communities around the world.
Why Black History Month matters
Black History Month is about hearing the voices of some of the most charismatic, intellectual and inspirational figures in the Black community and allowing their stories and insights to challenge the attitudes of audiences up and down the country. This sort of education is absolutely vital if we want to keep clearing the path to a more inclusive future, and it allows people from all walks of life to understand and celebrate Black heritage.
How to celebrate Black History Month
The best way to celebrate Black History Month is to educate yourself by listening to as many of the event’s speakers as possible. Whether you want to learn more about some of the early pioneers of racial equality or become better acquainted with more modern movements such as Black Lives Matter, the more knowledge you gain the better equipped you will be to help promote diversity.
