February 2021 celebrates 95 years since recognition of Black History Month, which began in the United States. Black History Month is intended to recognise the contribution and achievements of black people.
When Black History month started in the UK, there was a focus on black American history. Now, there is more attention on black British history and key black figures. In the UK, Black History Month is celebrated annually in October.
Black History Walk is a virtual walk of the contribution of services, provisions and facilities designed by black people over the years, which have added to the development of society, nationally and internationally.
