Black History Month 2020 - Education and Empowerment

Black History Month

As Maya Angelou once said, "The more you know of your history the more liberated you are".

At KCLSU, we honour and celebrate different Liberation History Months to combat oppression, but also to connect and empower the various communities at King's. 

This year in Black History Month we are focusing on education and empowerment, inviting students to take part and shape it into a place to discuss, learn and be inspired. Stay tuned for what is coming this month in collaboration with ACS and other student groups:

  • Events: have a look at the different events organised during the whole month here and keep an eye on those coming on a regular basis here.
  • Activities and initiatives: Among all the inspiring and interesting initiatives organised for this month, The African Caribbean Society brings you Queen’s at King’s and ACS Cares, two well-known projects to empower black women and to talk about mental health in the black community. Be ready for more!
  • Empowerment: Stay tuned for the upcoming Leadership Masterclasses on anti-racism and allyship.

The challenges faced by both the Black community at King's and in the wider world have been increasingly evident throughout 2020 so as the year winds down and term starts we want to create a space to celebrate, pause, reflect, learn, combat and inspire.
