Welcome to Black History Month 2006 in Brighton & Hove

Those who have no record of what their forebears have accomplished lose the inspiration which comes from the teaching of biography and history

Dr. Carter G. Woodson, 1926

Black History Month (in Britain this takes place in October) is a season which has the potential to bring together disparate sections of Brighton & Hove communities in a genuine effort to promote greater community cohesion and further the drive towards race equality. This weblog will outline proposals for a sustainable Black History Month designed to truly reflect the needs of Brighton & Hove’s Black and Minority Ethnic (BME) communities as well as provide a point of departure for learning opportunities to be created throughout the year.

The key concept behind the design of the Black History Month 2006 is to empower individuals and communities to identify with and participate in event planning and hosting for this year and beyond. This is an inclusive agenda: all sections of Black and Minority Ethnic communities are invited to share their ideas, provide their input and time in order to make this year’s Black History Month in Brighton & Hove a real success.
