Black History Month Leicester

Black History Month (BHM) takes place each year in October. In Leicester, we mark the occasion with a programme of events that promote the history and contributions of African and Caribbean communities. Our programme helps us to understand the present through our past. Serendipity was awarded the tenure by Leicester City Council and has overseen BHM in Leicester since 2012.
