Black History Month

Celebrating Black History Month

For the month of October, we proudly celebrate Black History Month, an event that has been celebrated nationwide for more than 30 years; and the Corps Together Team have quite a month installed for us all…

The month was originally founded to recognise the contributions that people of African and Caribbean backgrounds have made to the UK over many generations. Now, Black History Month has expanded to include the history of not just African and Caribbean people but black people in general.

Black History Month UK has launched a new campaign to mark this month, inspired by the events of 2020, the new campaign is called ‘Proud to Be’. The campaign invites Black and Brown people of all ages throughout the UK to share what they are proud to be.

For example, Proud to Be Black, Proud to Be Brown, Proud to Be Black & LGBTQ+, Proud To Be Me.

We want to reach out to all our Black and Brown Communities across the UK and encourage all colleagues to share what they are Proud to Be via letter, email, or social media, including video and audio clips!!

In addition to this, over the coming weeks, our Guardian Team will be sharing resources, history and articles in celebration of this month!
