About Black History Month
Black History Month is an annual celebration of the contribution that black, African and Caribbean communities have made locally and across the globe.
Hackney Council will celebrate independence, democracy and leadership by highlighting contributions made by black communities and promoting the importance of active citizenship and political participation.
There be lots of events for children and young people and schools will host events throughout the month, supported by The Learning Trust.
Here in Hackney we celebrate black culture and achievement all year round, so please sign up to our mailing lists at the events to keep you in the loop.
Last year's events attracted our biggest ever turnout and we're confident that this year's programme will continue to build on that success.
