Black History Month is an annual event which celebrates the cultures and achievements of Black communities. 2017 will be Black History Month’s 30th Anniversary.
This year’s theme is centred around inspiration and aspiration. By celebrating Black History and the achievements of Black figures from the past and present, we hope to inspire more Black students to recognise their own potential and get involved in their SU, their university, and in shaping the world around them.
