Southwark College celebrated Black History Month with a series of events, activities and trips to highlight the achievements and contributions of Black people to society and encourage staff and students to share what they are ‘Proud to be’.

Students participated in various enrichment activities, attended an African Drumming session, choreographed and performed a dance piece featuring live music inspired by Black culture and visited the Tate Modern to see artworks created by Black artists.

During the month, the College also welcomed actor Andre Dwayne and Jonathan Brown, founder of Ideas to Action, who shared their experiences and pathways to success to inspire and motivate students.

Annette Cast, Principal at Southwark College, said: “The values of Equality, Diversity, and Inclusion are embedded in everything we do at Southwark College and Black History Month is an excellent opportunity to celebrate the many different nationalities, cultures, and languages that make up our College community.

“We’re proud to take part in Black History Month celebrations to give our students the opportunity to learn about the achievements, contributions, and the positive impacts of black culture in society.”

Andre Dwayne, Actor on Blue Story, said: “I believe that there’s no limit to your success, and if you work hard, you can achieve your dreams. Coming to Southwark College and speaking to the students has been a fantastic opportunity to demonstrate this, and I hope that sharing my story has shown them what they can achieve.”

Michaella Gift, Access to Higher Education student, said: “I’ve enjoyed attending Andre Dwayne’s talk this Black History Month. Hearing about his success story has boosted my confidence and motivated me to pursue my dreams.”
