Black History Month

This year the theme for Black History month is ‘Proud To Be.’

Inspired by the 2020 Black Lives Matter events, the new 2021 Black History month campaign invites Black and Brown people across the UK to share what they are ‘Proud to be.’

‘The campaign aims to make Black History Month 2021 personal and unique to individuals, families and communities, focusing on how we’re all making history all the time in our own ways, as well as the contributions and achievements of Black people throughout history.’

www.blackhistorymonth.org Catherine Ross, Editor at Black History Month UK, explained why they are launching the campaign: “It’s been a challenging time for many Black and Brown people, with so much in the media about racism, inequality and injustice. We wanted the theme of Black History Month 2021 to focus on celebrating being Black or Brown, and to inspire and share the pride people have in their heritage and culture – in their own way, in their own words. “By asking people to share what they are Proud To Be we can share both individual stories and the vast richness of diversity that Black and Brown people bring to the UK. “Black Lives Matter means people being able to live life to the fullest without having to compromise who they are. Everyone deserves the right to be Proud To Be everything they are and want to be in life.”
