Black History Wales 2020 All Wales online Launch

We are delighted to announce that Black History Wales will be launching a year long programme on the 1st of October, 1 pm to 3 pm.

The theme for this year is

  2000 Nations | Celebrating Diversity 

People of African and Caribbean descent originate from around 2000 different ethnic groups with a range of over 2000 languages and multiple cultural traditions. A year to explore the interventions, educational achievements, innovative contributions and to celebrate and share this rich heritage through the Arts here in Wales.

The programme this year is moving to Black History Wales – rather than ‘Black History Month Wales’ and is a full year of activity under the Black History Cymru 365 remit that we’ve been working towards these last few years. Launching 1st October 2020 and running until September 30th 2021.

The event will be opened by the Hon First Minister, Professor Mark Drakeford MS and launch a full year of Black History Cymru 365 activity to celebrate the achievements and contributions made to Wales by individuals of African and African-Caribbean heritage.
