Black History Month 2019
Every year in October, Croydon joins the rest of the UK in celebrating black history month.
Croydon BME Forum are working with Croydon Council to celebrate Black History Month in Croydon.
This year’s theme – 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.
With nearly 50 events across the borough during October, many of them free to attend, there’s something for everyone to enjoy including musical performances, film viewings, book discussions, history sessions, networking events and more.
