We recognise that Black history should be part of how we look at history in general and not just siloed into a month.
Nevertheless, Black History Month provides an opportunity for reflection and learning; it's a chance to look at where we've been and where we're going.
Throughout October we will shine a spotlight on how Black history has shaped our university community and city. We will also be celebrating some of the work being done to achieve racial equity, and ensuring it becomes the norm throughout the year.
The theme for Black History Month 2023 is 'Saluting our Sisters'. Visit the official Black History Month website for a wide range of news, views, features, listings, resources, and a diversity dashboard.
The centre fosters research being done around the artistic and intellectual work of people of African descent, with projects ranging from UK hip-hop to slavery and its legacies. Read more about the Centre on the Arts Matter blog.
Learn more about the university's race equality strategy, and some of the initiatives being undertaken to tackle racial discrimination.
