October is Black History Month www.blackhistorymonth.org.uk/black-history-month-2021
This year, Black History Month aims to recognise the achievements and contributions Black people make to the UK every day – from the Black people working on the Covid-19 frontline in our hospitals, care homes, schools, supermarkets and warehouses, to the children and young people leading the fight for equality in the classroom, to the household names using their platforms to push for change.
