Learn from the past to create an equal future

This year's Black History Month event is being led by Croydon BME Forum in collaboration with Croydon Council BAME staff network group. The theme for this year is Learn From the Past to Create an Equal Future.

With this theme, Croydon BME Forum will recognise the contributions made by our key workers during Covid-19 and also celebrate the Black Lives Matter movement. A range of exciting events will take place across the borough and include opportunities to discover historical events through performance, music, storytelling and song, as well as the opportunity to take part in thought-provoking discussions.

What's happening

A host of activities celebrating the history, heritage and culture of the African and Caribbean community gets underway on 1 October with an event online using Zoom and Facebook.

See the list of activities that will be taking place during the month of October.
