Birmingham Black History Month 2016 Brochure

Birmingham Blackstory Partnership

Black History Month (BHM) 2016 is taking place throughout October. The month will encompass a collection of events and activities offering opportunities for people from all around Birmingham to explore and learn about the history and heritage of African, Caribbean and Asian communities and their struggles, triumphs, lessons and legacies in order to educate, empower and motivate. 
Birmingham Blackstory Partnership has been commissioned by Birmingham City Council to plan and deliver the Birmingham Black History Month 2016 launch programme.  As a part of this, we are producing a brochure and website for Black History Month 2016. The brochure will list events and activities taking place in Birmingham during October and we would appreciate if you could assist us by providing details of all events and activities you have planned to celebrate this year’s Black History Month.
