Black History Month at Oxford

Black History Month has been celebrated across the UK every October for over 30 years, each year growing from strength to strength. Black History Month is a time when we celebrate the achievements of the black, Asian and minority ethnic communities and shed light on the often hidden history and heritage of these communities. It is a time for people of all backgrounds to share in an exciting aspect of the UK’s diverse and evolving cultures.
