During October 2018 the University of Nottingham is celebrating Black History Month with film screenings, panel discussions and more.

Activities and events will also be taking place in our Faculties, Schools, Departments and Professional Services. Details of a number of further events will follow in a comprehensive programme announced on Monday 1 October 2018.

Dr Val Watson, Head of University Counselling Service and Chair of the University’s BME Staff Network, said:

“During October 2018 UoN will stage a number of events and presentations that are faculty wide and for public interest and enjoyment whilst acknowledging that history is being made every day; made every month.

We hope that you will join us in this celebration and contribute to the ongoing debates about the inequities that exist and the progress that is being made albeit slowly. Here, at Nottingham we want to do our part. History is an active process so join in.”

We look forward to welcoming you to our events.
