Black History Month was originally founded to recognise the contributions that people of African and Caribbean backgrounds have made to the UK over many generations. Now, Black History Month has expanded to include the history of not just African and Caribbean people but black people in general.

It first started in The United States which was known as African-American History Month and was first celebrated in the United Kingdom in October 1987; the United States celebrates it every year in February while the United Kingdom celebrates it every year in October.

This year the theme and campaign is ‘Saluting our Sisters’ highlighting the crucial role that black women have played in shaping history, inspiring change, and building communities. Encouraging Black and Brown individuals that in order to get to a better tomorrow, we can’t just focus on the past. The past is in the past and all we can do is acknowledge and learn from it, however, to improve the future, we need more actions, not words.

Goals and Objectives

  • To increase dialogue, reduce prejudices and racism, and encourage understanding of one another among diverse members of our community.
  • To provide an opportunity for Black and Brown community members to share their life experiences with strangers in a face-to-face question-and-answer situation.
  • To strengthen the relationships with other organizations in the community and then collaborate with organizations that represent or serve different groups.
  • To raise awareness and celebrate Black History Month
  • To create spaces where Black and Brown people in the community could feel free to express themselves through any form (i.e singing, painting, sewing, spoken words and much more)
  • To bring together different groups in your community.

Black History Plymouth Bus

We’re excited to announce our partnership with Plymouth City Bus to show our support of the BAME community to the whole city.

The Bus will be a physical platform which will serve as an educational tool that can help increase public awareness and understanding of Black history and culture. This can help combat prejudice and discrimination by challenging stereotypes and promoting a more accurate and nuanced understanding of Black people’s experiences.
