Birmingham’s Black History Month launches this week

Published: Friday, 17th September 2021

Birmingham’s celebration of Black History Month will be launched with a special event tomorrow (18 September 2021).

As well as reflecting the city’s diversity and heritage, this year’s programme also reflects on the continued impact of Covid-19 has had on Black, Asian and minority ethnic communities.

This year’s launch marks a return to live events and will take place at the Legacy Centre of Excellence at 144 Potters Lane, Aston from 6pm.

It will feature inspiring speakers and creative performances, with many drawing on their and the wider community’s experiences.

Birmingham’s Black heritage and its citizens’ own stories will also raise awareness of the challenges and the perceptions that have restricted their access to opportunities, progress and participation in our society.

Free tickets for this launch event are available from the Eventbrite website:
