Supporting Black History Month in Manchester.

Today marks the start of Black History Month in the UK. A month dedicated to a time when we as a community can celebrate and reflect on the contributions of black people throughout Mancunian, British and worldwide history.

Since the first major voyage of Caribbean people to the UK in 1948, Manchester has benefited from the rich cultural diversity that has been introduced to the city over the years.

This year’s Black History Month is offering a wide array of events at venues across Manchester including the Contact Theatre and Salford’s Working Class Movement Library.

From comedy to hip-hop, from theatre to poetic exploration I believe there is something for everyone to sample and enjoy.

It is an opportunity to take the time to learn and consider the great contributions and accomplishments that black people have made towards making Manchester the exceptional city it is today.
