Due to the success and popular demand of October’s Black History Month, we will be continuing the exploration of similar themes in February, in line with the internationally recognized Black History Month that celebrates different heritages within peoples of African and Caribbean descent.
This month we will be examining topics such as identity, homophobia, success, politics of ethnic names, and much more.
