Celebrate Black History Month

Liberal Democrats Camden celebrating Black History MonthOctober is Black History Month in the UK: a time to celebrate the enormous contributions Black people have made to our country. 

Throughout this month, we remember icons from the trailblazing composer Samuel Coleridge-Taylor, to Margaret Busby - Britain's youngest and first Black female book publisher.

We also celebrate those who helped establish our National Health Service, joined the war effort, marched for justice and worked tirelessly to build a better world for all of us, including those who continue to blaze a trail and fight for justice today.

We applaud and support the efforts of organisations such as The Black Curriculum to make sure that Black history is properly taught and understood in our schools as an integral part of the curriculum and that Black history is more widely known in society more generally. But, until then, Black History Month is still a vital tool in putting the spotlight on the contributions of often-overlooked Black people to our collective history.

Follow us on Twitter for the most up-to-date resources and links to events and initiatives we will be highlighting throughout Black History Month. Camden Lib Dems will be using our platforms on social media to amplify Black voices and help tell Black stories from both within our party and beyond.

Below, we have included links to some of the key Black History Month resources in Camden, London and online, where we can all learn more about Black history.

You can find key listings for Black History Month across the UK on the official website:
