news / Black History Season 2014
Black History Season is a season of events and activities which celebrates black culture, heritage and history and also raises awareness of the positive contributions of black individuals and communities in the United Kingdom.
Originating in America in 1926, Black History Season has been celebrated in London since 1987 and is also marked throughout the United Kingdom, with over 6,000 events taking place each year.
As Nelson Mandela was one of the greatest civil rights icons in the world and our chairperson and founder, Nelson Mandela Children's Fund UK celebrates black history season by visiting numerous school and colleges and by taking part in celebratory events and activities.
We travel extensively around the UK during Black History Season to celebrate the life of Nelson Mandela and talk about the work of our organisation through workshops, school assemblees, etc. The events that the Nelson Mandela Children's Fund UK attend during Black History Season are always very diverse and often include cultural stalls, food, live music and entertainment.
If you would like Nelson Mandela Children's Fund UK to visit your school, college, or place of work during Black History Season, then please contact email@example.com.
