Southwark College celebrated Black History Month to commemorate events in the African Diaspora and the contributions they have made to Britain and the world. The College hosted events throughout October and offered a space to explore Black history, casting an eye on where the past has taken Black realities in the current day.

Annette Cast, Principal at Southwark College, said: “Inclusion, equality and diversity are important to us and I’m pleased to see our students and staff learning and sharing their experiences while celebrating Black heritage.

"We are proud of our diverse College community, not only is Black History Month an opportunity for us to learn about the history, influence and experiences of Black people but it is also a time for us to reflect on our role as an educational institution in creating an environment where all of our students, staff, community and partners are respected, heard and valued.”

Students and staff took part in a range of activities, from African Drumming and Body Percussion, African Dance workouts, Azonto Dance Fitness Classes and a class on African Mask Making to celebrate African culture. A trip to the Tate Modern was also organised to see the Zanele Muholi exhibition.
