This October, Black History Month (BHM) takes on even more importance following events earlier in the year — in the wake of the Black Lives Matter movement, Black History Month 2020 is all the more relevant.
As part of Black History Month 2020, our academics, alumni and students weigh in on issues of equality, black achievements and black history for the SOAS blog, contributing to our celebration of black voices across the globe.
At SOAS, we are passionate about social justice, diversity and equality, and are committed to showcasing the talent, views – and reality – of black lives today.
Take a look at our range of Black History Month blogs, and get involved with #BlackHistoryMonth online.
