Black History Month 2023

Black History Month recognises and celebrates the invaluable contributions of black people to British society.

It also serves as an opportunity to inspire and empower future generations.

The 2023 theme of ‘Saluting our Sisters’ highlights the crucial role that black women have played in shaping history, inspiring change, and building communities. This year’s celebration will showcase pioneering black women who have made remarkable contributions to literature, music, fashion, sport, business, politics, academia, social and health care, and more.
