An Introduction

Welcome to Cambridge Black History Month 2020

Black History Month

Black History Month is held every year in October. It’s promotes the
history and contributions that Black people with origins in Africa, the Caribbean, North and South America and other Black communities around the world have made to Cambridge and the UK.

Events around the country include history and heritage, arts and
culture, news and ideas from the communities. It is an opportunity
to share activities and experiences.

Black History Month was first celebrated in the UK in 1987. We
have celebrated it in Cambridge since 2005.

Black History Month 2020

This year, as with many other activities and events, we are launching the programme on-line – gathering and sharing talks and lectures, articles, cookery, exhibitions and interviews to create an archive and celebrate Cambridge Black Heritage.

We hope you enjoy it!
