Black History Month


More than 1,400 events will be held nationwide to promote an awareness of black history and experience, positive black contributions to British society and black people's pride in their cultural heritage. It coincides with the end of Africa 05, a celebration of African visual arts, cinema, literature, history, music, craft and performing arts. For example, until October 31, the Horniman Museum in London is exhibiting West African textiles and the Kliptown Snappers (photos about life in a township in South Africa). To coincide with Black History Month, the exhibition Amazon to Caribbean: Early Peoples of the Rainforest opens on October 1 and runs for a year. It explores the links between Amerindian cultures and the development of Caribbean art, culture and identity.
