Time for Change: Action Not Words
Black History Month (BHM) takes place annually in October in the United Kingdom. The event aims to celebrate, recognise, and help people learn about Black cultures and achievements; and to highlight the contributions of Black people to society. The theme for this year’s BHM celebration is “Time for Change: Action Not Words”.
