Black History Month



Black History Month- Saluting our Sisters


"Black History Month is about celebrating the achievements of Black people across the globe past and present. This year the theme is “Saluting our Sisters”.

The Students’ Union has interpreted this to mean a celebration of those part of Black Womanhood and the impact of their contributions on British culture. From music and food, fashion and art, and many more parts of British life, our impact can be widely seen and felt. We have so many wonderful Black Individuals within our community who continue to change the world for the better, every day.

This year, we want to celebrate our students, providing spaces to connect and build communities within our Students’ Union family. Our events aim to uplift and celebrate the culture of Black Women, supporting their contributions to society, both within the University and outside of it. We acknowledge the historic and systemic erasure of Black Women and their contributions to society – from Moorish Maidservants to Stonewall.
We will continue to thrive and make our mark #WeMatter."
