Black History Month

Introduction

This October will be a Black History Month like no other, with coronavirus having restricted the events that can be held in person. The University is committed to Black History Month as an opportunity to highlight the unique challenges that Black people face and to celebrate the unique contribution that Black people have made in Britain and around the world. Colleagues from across the University have developed a varied programme that involves virtual talks, performances, and debates. 

In addition to the events organised by the University, we urge staff and students to participate in events organised by our friends at Wolverhampton Students' Union and in the local community. Whilst coronavirus has meant it was not possible to organise the traditional Black History Month Brochure, we have worked with the Black History Month Group to highlight events being held in the community on this webpage.
