Why Celebrate Black History Month?

Top 15 Black History Month Speakers at Great British Speakers

Black History Month (BHM) first came to prominence in the UK in the 1980’s, with the first organised events taking place in London in 1987.  The movement, which happens here in the UK every October, was first proposed by Black scholars in the US, looking for ways to challenge racism, to celebrate black culture and the lives of black people who have done remarkable things around the world.

Despite this revolutionary movement and the rise of equality and diversity awareness, racism is still present in our everyday lives. This was no more evident than in 2020 when we witnessed the world come together in response to the deaths of George Floyd and Breonna Taylor in the United States.

The demonstrations of solidarity that followed sparked what became to be known as the #BlackLivesMatter movement, a worldwide movement for equality and justice again racial discrimination.

As a result of the Black Lives Matter movement, Black History Month (BHM) 2021, was possibly one of the most significant since the event began and demonstrated the solidarity and support for BAME communities, and yet in the months that followed, England’s players at Euro 2020 also became victims of racial abuse online, demonstrating that there is still a long way to go for racial equality.
