Black History Month
Black History Month has been celebrated widely for many years honouring the achievements, culture and history of black people.
In Southwark, Black History Month has been recognised for over 20 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.
Grants for BHM events
Grants for BHM events held in October 2018 have already been awarded. The text and documents below are for general information only.
There's 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.
