Inspired by the 2020 Black Lives Matter events, this year’s Black History Month campaign is called ‘Proud To Be’.
Here at the University of Bedfordshire, we have launched our own campaign - Proud To Be Black. We have invited our Black students, staff and alumni to share what makes them proud and what their heritage, Black British history and Black culture means to them.
Through our case studies, events and activities taking place during Black History Month 2021, we aim to celebrate and show support to Bedfordshire’s diverse student and staff community. As well as remembering the contributions and achievements of Black people throughout history, Black Britons at the University and across the UK continue to make history in their own ways every day, which makes us incredibly proud.
