Black History Month
The CWU is commemorating Black History Month and remembering the contribution of Black men and women and more recently other ethnic BAME groups.
We are delighted to confirm that we have put together, in conjunction with our National BAME NEC representative Ali Moosa, a series of events that will be run over the coming weeks, as part of this year’s Black History Month celebrations.
The Black History Month events programme list and dates are as follows:
Wednesday 21st October 2020 at 6.30pm – Panel Session on Role of the Commonwealth during WWI & WWII (further details including registration will be circulated soon).
Wednesday 28th October 2020 – Launch of ‘My Journey’ video. This will be a series of short videos merged into a short film that will highlight the often difficult journeys that member’s families have had in coming to the UK decades ago.
Film Night. We will be communicating the details of the film night nearer the time but essentially we will announce a film/documentary and ask people to watch it. During the viewing an online discussion will commence using various platforms (Facebook, Twitter etc) with a dedicated hashtag inviting members to comment and discuss the programme.
We would urge Branches to encourage members to participate in these events.
Any queries on this LTB should be directed to Equality&Education@cwu.org
