Black History Month in the United Kingdom is celebrated in October each year. It is a time dedicated to honouring the history, achievements, and contributions of Black people in the UK. Black History Month in the UK has its origins in the United States but has been adapted to reflect the history and experiences of Black Britons.
At Upside Down House UK we believe in inclusivity and recognising each and everyone’s success. To create awareness about Black History Month and to recognise the historical and cultural contributions of the Black community, we have put a few temporary bespoke made artworks at our Westfield Upside Down House that will be available for you to see from 10th Oct to 15th Oct 2023.
Black History Month in the UK is an important time to acknowledge the rich and diverse history of Black Britons, as well as to address issues of racial inequality and discrimination that continue to exist. It is a time to promote understanding, unity, and a commitment to social justice for all members of society.
“We all have dreams. In order to make dreams come into reality, it takes an awful lot of determination, dedication, self-discipline and effort.”—Jesse Owens
