Black History Month Leicester
Black History Month (BHM) takes place each year in October. In Leicester, we mark the occasion with a programme of events that promote the history and contributions of African and Caribbean communities. Our programme helps us to understand the present through our past. Serendipity was awarded the tenure by Leicester City Council and has overseen BHM in Leicester since 2012.
Each year our programming centres around a unifying theme. The theme for 2020 is Black British Theatre. We will explore over 60 years of Black British Theatre, reflecting on seminal pieces of work.
2020 also marks Serendipity’s tenth anniversary.
