First Minister Of Wales Mark Drakeford AM Endorses Black History Month Wales 2019

In celebrating Black History Month, we pay tribute to the contributions made to Wales by people from BAME communities. We thank them for their efforts and sacrifices over the generations. We will continue to welcome and embrace those from other places who seek to improve our communities and we will challenge discrimination faced by these communities wherever we find it.

Black History Month 2019

As First Minister of Wales I am delighted to support Black History Month Wales 2019 on its 12th anniversary.

I want to thank Race Council Cymru and all the organisations involved in arranging these commemorative events. These give us an opportunity to shine a light on the culture, identity and contributions of our communities. As a nation, Wales is proud of the diversity of its communities, is grateful for the contributions of so many and is confident that together the legacies of past generations will play a key role in shaping its future.

2019 has been another year of observing significant anniversaries.
