Black History Month

 
Time 60 days ago Comments 0 comments
 

For almost 40 years, the UK has celebrated Black History Month every October – a time to recognise and value the inspirational individuals and events that have shaped African and Caribbean history, and to celebrate Black arts and culture. Now, Black History Month has expanded to include the history of not just Afro- Caribbean black people but all black people in general.

Black History Month is commemorated with various events across the region, including talks, exhibitions and concerts. Opportunities include Birmingham University’s programme of events, art plays and more in London, and film screenings in Cardiff. Discover what events are taking place near you here - there are now roughly 6,000 events taking place for Black History Month across the UK every year!

Sodexo Origins was launched in 2016 and promotes the inclusion of all cultures and origins.

Everyone in Sodexo is invited to join the Origins employee network. Origins offers advice and resources to its members, as well as networking opportunities held throughout the year.
