To celebrate Women’s History Month and International Women’s Day 2023 – join us on Saturday 11 March for an exciting programme of activities to celebrate everyday Black women
During March, Women’s History Month celebrates the vital role of women in history and acknowledges women’s contributions to culture and society.
But historically, the contributions of Black women, some of who have been behind several of the world’s impactful social movements, lacks wide recognition or are entirely erased from public historical narratives. Yet, the very fabric of society would be different without the contributions from Black women.
Here in the UK, join us on Saturday, 11 March 2023, as we acknowledge the labour, sacrifices, and the incredible and inspirational contributions of dedicated pioneers who contributed and helped shape our world, as well as the committed Black women who have continued the exceptional work set by their forerunners.
