Black History Month 2020
Black History Month
October is Black History Month (BHM) – an annual celebration of the black history, achievements and contributions across the world.
While acknowledging inequality can never be limited to a single month, Black History Month is a distinctive time of addressing misrepresentations of black history, challenging oppression and celebrating diversity and inclusion.
We recognise that 2020 has been a year for activism and has highlighted the need for BAME and especially Black voices to be heard. Every individual at Coulsdon College should feel safe and comfortable to bring their whole self to their place of work or study.
This month we’ll be looking forward to the different departmental celebrations taking place across the College. Keep an eye on this page for updates.
For Black History Month 2020, we’ve invited current staff and students to take part in a profile to showcase our excellent diversity throughout the College.
