Join Southwark in honouring the achievements, culture and history of African, Caribbean and diaspora communities.

We have a month-long programme of exciting and inspirational events and workshops throughout Black History Month this October.

We have worked with a range of wonderful individuals and organisations to make sure there’s a local event for everyone in the borough and something for people of all ages and interests.
