Celebrating Black history and culture 365 days a year

  • Jun

Islington Council’s Black History Working group is excited to bring you a range of events all about Black history, culture, literature, life and learning, packed with opportunities to listen, learn, share, remember and reflect. There’s something for everyone to enjoy including thought-provoking discussions, history sessions, networking events, and much more.  

Islington Council’s staff network, the Black History Working Group, have collaborated with council colleagues, community leaders, local voluntary organisations, and others to bring these events to life, and share with everyone in Islington and the wider community an allyear round approach to Black history, culture and its associated factors. We all know Black history should not start and stop in Black History Month alone, so let’s all #ChangeTheNarrative and dig into the upcoming events, all of which are free
