Black History Month

Black History Month
with uea(su)!

Black history month is all about celebrating, recognising, and honouring all the amazing contributions, creations, and the overall cultural impact that Black people have made throughout history, especially as these contributions have often been overlooked or downplayed.

This month is an opportunity to share and promote the knowledge of Black history, to celebrate all the amazing things that Black people have done and are currently doing around the world. We’re also celebrating here at UEA our fantastic cohort of Black students and their amazing contributions.

Throughout the next year there will be opportunities for students to put forward their suggestions so we can better understand what Black students need from the su, as well as workshops and online meetups that look at leadership skills and navigating different kind of spaces.

We recognise that whilst Black History month is vital in celebrating the achievements of Black students and their history, there’s still a lot more we can do as a union to improve the relationship between ourselves and our community of Black students, and we are committed to working on change.

For more information on what we’re looking to do email the Welfare, Community and Diversity Officer at [email protected]
