What is Black History Month? Analysing the Origins and Contemporary Necessity of Black History Month.
2nd October, 6:30pm-7:30pm – Newman Lecture Theatre

History Society’s series of academic talks kicks off with Dr. Miguel Hernandez speaking on the topic of: What is Black History Month? Analysing the Origins and Contemporary Necessity of Black History Month. 

Although its origins lie in the early 20th century, Black History Month remains a controversial topic in contemporary society in the United States as well as in the United Kingdom. This talk will examine the original aims of the black scholars and civil rights activists that established this month of observance and its development into a global phenomenon. Analysing the disagreements that have emerged over the format of Black History Month and the questions over the wider necessity of this celebration, this talk will outline how black history and a deeper understanding of how racism continues to permeate our institutions is as vital now as it was in previous generations.

*This is a public talk, all are welcome. There will also be free refreshments for the audience*
