About Black History Month
We owe the concept of Black History Month to the son of former slaves, Dr. Carter G Woodson, an African American scholar, who noted that American history books largely ignored the Black American Population.
The situation in Scotland is similar. To counter Scotland's 'hidden history', CRER has co-ordinated Black History Month during October since 2001, and has encompassed the history of African, Caribbean and Asian people in this country; people who often have a direct link with Scotland through slavery, colonialism and migration. Black History Month focuses on people whose sacrifices, contributions and achievements against a backdrop of racism, inequality and injustice are often forgotten about and who are absent from our history books and education system.
While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for Black History Month are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
