Black History Month at AUBSU

On behalf of your Race Equalities Officer Julia, you are invited to celebrate diversity, inclusivity, and culture with AUBSU as part of Black History Month 2020.

October 1st - October 31st


What is it?

Student representation is one of the most important things we try to achieve here at AUBSU, whether that be through our clubs and societies, democratic procedures, or events. This year, your Race Equalities Officer Julia has put together a jam-packed schedule of events and activities that you can take part in to celebrate Black History Month. 

Whether you like watching films or learning more about the importance of Black History Month – there is something for everyone to get involved in. We don’t like stereotypes here at AUBSU, so we want to highlight that these events are for everyone…. it’s an all-inclusive celebration of diversity and culture. 

To give you a little taste of what is happening across the month, we’ve compiled all the events into a timetable so that you can follow and plan ahead for certain events that you want to attend. Please be aware that you will need to purchase tickets for a couple of the events in advance. 


Ticket Details and Information:


See the What's On Calendar for the links to all other events. 


Why is it important that we celebrate Black History Month?

Black History Month means different things to everyone and pride for this month is expressed in a variety of different ways.

For many, Black History Month is a way of reflecting on the diverse histories of those from African and Caribbean descent, taking note of the achievements and contributions to the social, political, economic and cultural development of the UK.
