Black History Month is 30 years old in 2017. See what’s on and book for highlights of October’s celebration of history, arts, literature and film features
Sonia Winifred, Lambeth Council’s Cabinet Member for Equalities and Culture said:
“I am delighted to invite you to this year’s Black History Month celebrations, which will be running throughout October in Lambeth. Last year people told us how inspiring and uplifting they found the events and this year’s programme is just as exciting. There is something for everyone to enjoy and it is a wonderful opportunity to learn about and celebrate African and Caribbean culture and heritage which enriches all our lives. Lambeth Libraries have teamed up with Pegasus Opera, Rhythm & Views Festival, Age UK Lambeth and the Black Cultural Archives, along with many individual artists and writers, to provide a fantastic month. I hope you will be able to join us.”
