Black Heroes Foundation

Black History Month

Black History Month in the UK is during the month of October. For the whole of October activities are organised to celebrate important people and events in the history of people of the African diaspora. It was first celebrated in the UK in 1987. The Greater London Council (GLC) were instrumental in its first celebrations held at London County Hall. This year, 1987 marked 150 years since the emancipation of slaves in the Caribbean, and the centenary of the birth of the great Pan-Africanist Marcus Garvey.

For us at the Black Heroes Foundation every day is Black History Day. We celebrate our heritage 365 days a year. However, it is good to have a month dedicated for celebrations across the nation, and we do hold special events for these annual joyous, ceremonies of remembrance and recognition.
