Black History Month 2020, Wolverhampton School of Art, University of Wolverhampton

We are embracing Black History Month beyond the confines of a single month. Our intention is for Black History Month to transcend seasonality and 'tokenism’ so that the original initiative itself is eventually no longer required. This is an ambitious but wholly worthwhile target because we believe that such historiographical engagement lays the foundation for decolonising euro-centric and hegemonic/dominant History. In short, we are working towards a longer-term goal to rebalance the asymmetrical relationship between ‘Black History’ and ‘History’.
