A Brief History of UK Black History Month
UK Black History Month has been celebrated in the UK since 1987 and is a month-long celebration of the history, culture, and contributions of the black people in the UK. The month of October was chosen to coincide with African Jubilee Day, which has been observed since 1982. The first Black History Month celebration in the UK started in London organized by Ghanaian Akyaaba Addai-Sebo, who arrived as a refugee in 1984. It was aimed explicitly at promoting and advocating black culture and history within Britain, as well as challenging racism. While the American Black History Month may have inspired Britain’s, over time it’s become its own celebration prioritizing key Black figures in British culture and history.
Celebrating Black culture and history
Peloton Studios London’s special event promises to be an enriching and fun evening for people to learn, appreciate and celebrate the contributions of Black people to British society as a whole. Don’t miss this opportunity to celebrate UK Black History Month with Peloton Studios London.
