Welcome / Croeso

Every October throughout the UK, Black History Month celebrates the achievements and contributions of Black people to the development of British society, technology, economy and arts & culture.

Year on year Black History Month is proving to be one of the most engaging, lively and welcoming events in Wales’ cultural calendar. It serves both as an educational project and an entertaining experience for those interested in and inspired by African and Caribbean Heritage and the Welsh connection.

Black History Month Wales’ unique flavour draws on a wealth of historic and current connections – explored through a host of activities for families, children and people of all ages, backgrounds and abilities.
