Black History Month

October marks Black History Month, an incredible opportunity for us to commemorate the history of Black communities and celebrate the immense contribution that people of African, Arab, Asian and Caribbean heritage make to humanity. In the student movement - and more widely - the term "Black" is a positive, political term born out of the struggle for equality. It is used to unify all Black communities in the campaign to end racism and under-representation.

Black History Month is an opportunity to be educated on, and celebrate, the wonderfully diverse cultures and histories of these groups whilst contributing to the fight against racial prejudice and discrimination. 

Black History Month Events

Throughout October, we are hosting events, sharing resources and starting conversations online and across campus. Information will be added to this page throughout the month so keep checking back to find out how you can get involved.

Black History Book Club

We want to celebrate Black History all year, every year.

Every 6 weeks we’re bringing you a discussion and reviews about a book written by a BME author. We have a limited number of free books available each session on a first come-first served basis. Reviews from everyone are welcome!

Mis Hanes Pobl Dduon

Mae mis Hydref yn nodi Mis Hanes Pobl Dduon, sy’n gyfle gwych i ni goffáu hanes cymunedau Duon a dathlu cyfraniad enfawr pobl Affricanaidd, Arabaidd, Asiaidd a Caribïaidd i ddynoliaeth. Yn y mudiad myfyrwyr - ac yn ehangach - mae’r term ‘Du’ yn derm cadarnhaol a gwleidyddol a ddaeth allan o’r frwydr dros gydraddoldeb. Mae’n cael ei ddefnyddio i uno cymunedau Duon yn yr ymgyrch i roi terfyn ar hiliaeth a diffyg cynrychiolaeth.

Mae Mis Hanes Pobl Dduon yn gyfle i addysgu eraill a dathlu diwylliannau a grwpiau amrywiol y grwpiau hyn tra’n cyfrannu i frwydro yn erbyn rhagfarn a gwahaniaethu hiliol.
