A vibrant and fun afternoon of acknowledging and celebrating Black History directly in the heart of Brighton: an event for people of all ages. Doors open at 2pm and there will be a Gospel music performance by Kingdom Choir prior to the official welcome by Cllr Simon Burgess and the launch of the logo competition.
