What did you think of Black History Month 2006 in Brighton & Hove?

Image of Evaluation Newsletter, Dec. 2006

An evaluation stall was held in Jubilee Library, central Brighton earlier this month, to provide people with the opportunity to give their views on how they felt Black History Month 2006 in Brighton & Hove went.
In order to encourage people to participate, everyone who completed a questionnaire and left their contact details with us, were entered into a prize draw to receive a free Afrolosophi Hamper. Tim Ojo, of Afrolosophi, picked the winner at random today.

To visit the Afrolosophi website, please click here: http://www.afrolosophi.co.uk/

The winner, who has already been notified, is to receive a Party Hamper.

Thank you once again to all those who took part in the evaluation. If you would also like to complete a questionnaire and have not yet had the opportunity to do so, please contact us to receive one electronically.

Black History Month 2006 in Brighton & Hove has now come to an end.
Thank you to all of you who supported the events with your presence, donations in money and time and your good wishes.

While October is over, legacies have been created which, it is hoped, will endure for the rest of the year and beyond.

  • Zindika Black Books Group, having been launched during Black History Month, continues to meet regularly.
  • The BME Business Network had a successful and invigorating inaugural social event, and it was agreed that a formal network should be founded. Sussex Enterprise have been extremely supportive and the next meeting is due to take place in November 2006.
  • There are plans to establish a Black Film Society with the support of the British Film Institute (BFI).

If you would like to be involved with the evaluation of Black History Month 2006 in Brighton & Hove, or if you would like to know more about the initiatives described in the bullet points above, please contact us. We would very much like to hear from you.

Roll on October 2007!
