Please join us in October for this year’s Black History Month celebrations in Lambeth
Black History Month is one of the most popular and exciting events in the council’s calendar, with a mix of inspirational and thought-provoking events to celebrate Black history.
This year’s events look at the contribution of soldiers from Africa and the Caribbean during the First World War, as well as great heroines such as Mary Seacole and Maya Angelou.
There is a wide variety of events taking place over the month, including book launches, talks, reminiscence, film screenings, exhibitions, play performances and workshops.
St Martin’s Community Centre are celebrating the centenary of the formation of Marcus Garvey’s UNIA-ACL association while Lambeth Libraries are taking a closer look at the experience of coming to Britain from the Caribbean in the 1950s and 1960s. The Black Cultural Archives in Brixton will be celebrating the month with a fascinating series of activities, exhibitions and events.
