Black History Month 2019

Black History Month (BHM) is held each year in October, with a programme that promotes the history and contribution that African and Caribbean communities have made to Leicester, helping to understand the present through our past. Having been awarded the tenure by Leicester City Council, Serendipity has overseen BHM in Leicester since 2012. Each year our programming centres around a unifying theme. The theme for 2019 is Archiving the Past, Reflecting the Future, which will focus on Black British history and the contribution of the African and African Caribbean community to the artistic and cultural heritage of the East Midlands over the last 80 years.
