Black History Month is a celebration of black history, culture and pride. In the UK, the month of October is put aside to recognise and celebrate the contributions and the achievements of the black community and learn about black historical and contemporary figures who contribute to Britain.
Black History Month further aims to highlight the pride and struggles of people of black origin and other persons of colour from Afro-Caribbean background.
The first step towards meaningful change is awareness which hopefully leads to self-realization and discovery. So as we look forward to Black History Month this October, RGU and RGU:Union have been working hard over the summer to take advantage of this wonderful opportunity to not just join in the celebrations of black origin, history and culture but to raise awareness about racism, sensitizing the community and actively join in tackling and eradicating racism completely.
