Black
History Month

 October 2020 

October is Black History Month. It's a fantastic opportunity to celebrate the contributions of black people across the world and, specifically, the UK.

At BCUSU, your Officers are working hard to bring you educational events and activities happening throughout October, giving you the opportunity to learn about black history. See what's on below, get involved and celebrate!

“I want to celebrate this month for black people but also people of colours because we all must embrace and appreciate who we are. Also, my aim is to understand and respect each other’s culture. Let us make this month to support all our minority groups because I believe that our community is stronger together.” Jinal Shah, your Vice President Equity and Inclusion
