Come and celebrate Black History Month with SUBU this October!


 

Over the years, SUBU have put together a variety of events to inspire, support and educate during the month of October, and this year is no different. From book clubs and movies nights to panel discussions on being Black in the NHS, as a business entrepenuer and in the workplace, this month looks to educate the masses, celebrate achievements, and support Black Excellence.

Now more than ever, Black History Month is pivotal to push for equality, representation, and decolonisation. The Black Lives Matter protests were unwavering with their dedication to change and have become a vital element for a fair and equal future.

The events that we run during Black History Month exist to create safe spaces for BU's Black community, and to educate others on the inequalities that have existed through history.

This month isn't about just discussing the hardships that black people have had to face. It's about celebrating all that comes with who we have been blessed to be. Acknowledging black is beautiful and more than a struggle.

We hope you enjoy our Black History Month celebrations,

Naomie, SU President
Chiko, Vice-President Education
Toluwa, Vice-President Welfare and Communtiy
Omuwa, Vice-President Student Opportunities
