Black History Month 2019

Black History Month

Black History Month has been celebrated widely for many years honouring the achievements, culture, and the history of black people.

In Southwark, Black History Month has been recognised for over 25 years with a month long programme of exciting and inspirational events and workshops. Every year throughout October people, schools, libraries, groups and organisations host events and get involved with the celebration of black history.

Community grants are now available for BHM events to be held in October 2019

There is a long standing commitment to continue offering the community a vibrant selection of events and activities through programmes that provide insight into the history and culture of the African, Caribbean and diaspora communities.

We offer a number of small grants of up to £500 to enable smaller community celebrations of Black History to take place. For larger, more complicated events we also offer larger grants of up to £2,000.

The closing date for applications is Monday 3 June 9am
