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.

Black History Month (BHM) 2022

We will request applications for grants for the October 2022 BHM programme around  June 2022. We will post further information to this webpage closer to this date. 

We expect to 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 would also offer larger grants of up to £2,000.

Applications for these and other council grants must be made via our Grants Portal.
