Black History Month

Black History Month

Black is Here, Black is Diverse, Black is Joy, Black is Power.


Black History Month runs through the month of October every year. Here at Herts we want to bring you a month full of activities, reflecting and learning about the past, and starting to look to the future, where we will be making our own history. Black History Month is for everyone to get involved, so what are you waiting for? Jump straight in! To find the full programme of events and everything else you can get involved with, head to the official UH Black History Month webpage.
