Black History Month

 

Black History Month is an opportunity to celebrate and commemorate the individuals and events which have shaped African and Caribbean communities, as well as our collective history.

 

It also provides space for Black students to explore and articulate their own experiences, and a focus for the whole University community to discuss and address the on-going challenges facing Black communities in Britain and around the world.

 

The Students' Association's Black History Month celebrations take place during national Black History Month in October and are led by our Black and Minority Ethnic (BME) Officer, who this year is Isabella Neergaard-Petersen.

 

Plans are currently under-way for this year's programme. If you have any questions about Black History Month or the Students' Association's BME Campaign, or would like your event to be featured in the programme, please email the Students' Association's Welfare and Equality Officer Sarah Moffat at sarah.moffat@eusa.ed.ac.uk.
