Celebrate Black History Month by joining our virtual event on Thursday 22 October
6 October 2020
On Thursday 22 October 2020, Brent will be celebrating Black History Month. This year’s theme is ‘Black Lives Matter’.
This is a time to celebrate, research and learn about people of African and Caribbean backgrounds who have made a difference to the country over many generations.
There will also be discussions about some of the issues still faced by the black community. The day will include amazing performances, panel discussions, a quiz and cultural presentations – all delivered virtually due to COVID-19.
Cllr Margaret McLennan, Deputy Leader of Brent Council, said: “There has been a lot to emotionally contend with for the black community in Brent recently, and this is a time for us to celebrate and lift our spirits. I am excited and look forward to bringing everyone together virtually.
“There is a great line up planned, so do save the date and watch this space!”
