Each October, we observe Black History Month here in the UK to celebrate the contribution Black people have made to our culture and community. We also learn about and remember the history of Black communities at the University, in Exeter, and in the UK.
Our theme this year is: Empowering Black students to exist loudly all year round.
We’re excited to be working with our students and societies to share with you a diverse programme of events and activities for Black History Month 2023.
We have collaborated with some societies to provide you with some great events – check them out below:
