Croydon Tribute to Keyworkers: Black History Month 2020
“The world is a wheel. When we rise or fall, we do it together.” – Cassandra Clare
This year, we’re not only reflecting on what has been but we are inspired to use our history to shape the future we want to see. This is why our theme for 2020 is ‘Learning from our past to create an equal future’. We celebrate the Black Lives Matter movement and we also pay tribute to our key workers who worked tirelessly during COVID19 to keep us safe and to keep society moving.
One of the ways we have done this has been by creating a video to express our gratitude, together with representatives of our borough to say THANK YOU to all of our key workers.
A special thank you to all who took part in this production.
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 – Learn from the Past to Create an Equal Future
This year, Croydon BME Forum will recognise the contributions made by our key workers during Covid-19, WWII Day & The Black Servicemen & women who served and also celebrate the Black Lives Matter movement.
With 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.
