Black history month
During October the UK celebrates Black History Month (BHM).
The first BHM was celebrated in 1987 but today BHM has become an important date for the whole UK. BHM was created to promote and propagate the facts of Africa’s Contribution to World Civilisation from Antiquity to the Present and exposing contribution of Africans to the socio-political and economic life of the UK and the rest of the world.
This year, Ealing is marking the 33rd anniversary of BHM by celebrating the 2020 theme ‘Key moments in Black History’.
