THEME OF BLACK HISTORY MONTH UK 2021  WAS  BLACK TO THE  PAST 

Last October, we launched our 'Black to the Past' campaign to uncover Britain's hidden Black history spanning from Roman times to the 1800s. Learn about the key moments of that period and explore some of the everyday lives of ordinary Black Britons of the time.

Black British history is British history

These Black British activists fought to change the law and help create modern Britain, but their voices have been erased and forgotten from UK history.

Black History Month UK exists to tell their stories and ensure that Black Voices are heard.

But we are only able to provide you with a snapshot of Black British history. We hope that we piqued your interest and inspired you to find out more. We encourage you to look beyond the month of October because every day should Black History day.
