Equality, Diversity and Inclusion

Black History Month

Durham University is celebrating Black History Month with the rest of Britain this October. It is a great opportunity to recognise and appreciate the incredible achievements of our African and African Caribbean communities, including the rich heritage that they bring to our society. This also encourages us to reflect on our continuing efforts to promote inclusion and advance racial equality.

We have partnered with colleagues from Ustinov College, Library and Culture as well as the University’s BAME Network in organising a fantastic range of events open to all. This year’s theme is: “Commemorating the history and cultural heritage of our African and Caribbean communities.”
