Here's what we did last year!
We launched our first ever celebration for Black History Month, we had food, singing, dancing, spoken word poetry and inspirational talks. Along with society lead performances throughout the day. Thus show casing just how much we love to have events ran by students for students :) Last years Black History Month was a hit! However students fedback that they would have liked more celebration events for Black History Month and we have done just that!
