Call for Submissions: Black History Month 2015 Birmingham Brochure

July 30th, 2015 11:55 am

Black History Month was first celebrated in the United Kingdom in 1987. Since then the month of October has been dedicated to raise awareness through events and activities celebrating our Black History. If you have an event, exhibition, talk or activity planned to celebrate this year’s Black History Month this is your chance to get involved …

The Drum in partnership with Birmingham City Council is the official organisers of Black History Month 2015 Birmingham. We are putting together a collection of events and activities offering people from all around Birmingham the opportunity to explore and learn about the history and heritage of African, Caribbean and Asian communities in particular their struggles, achievements and contributions. We are producing a brochure and website that will list events taking place in Birmingham during October.

The theme this year will be the 50th anniversary of the Race Relations Act 1965  , with the launch event taking place on Friday 2 October.  The Drum will use performance and talks to show how attitudes to racial discrimination have changed in Birmingham and the rest of UK since the Act was put in place.

If you have an event, exhibition, talk or activity planned to celebrate this year’s Black History Month, please email Paulette Francis-Green on p-officer@the-drum.org.uk for a submission form or alternatively download and complete the form in the below link and return to the same address as mentioned above.
