A celebration of Black history, arts, literature and film.

I am delighted to invite you to this year’s Black History Month celebrations, which will be running throughout October.

Last year so many of you told us how inspiring and uplifting you found the events and this year’s programme is equally as exciting.

There is something for all ages and all tastes. Please take this wonderful opportunity to learn about and celebrate African and Caribbean heritage and culture, which influence and enrich all our lives.

Lambeth Libraries has partnered with Black Cultural Archives and many local organisations, along with a selection of brilliant writers and artists, to deliver this fantastic programme of events.

I hope you will join us.

Cllr Sonia Winifred
Cabinet Member for Equalities and Culture
