I’m Proud Of Britain’s Black History Month. But Now It Needs A Rethink

Linda Bellos, the politician responsible for introducing Black History Month to Britain wrote a piece for The Guardian reflecting on the last 30 years since she made it nationwide. In the piece she talks about why she focused on making it a reality, the social status of Black people in the 1980’s, and the opportunities Black History Month has given to show a swath of history that had largely been hidden. While she looks at the positive she also looks at some of its failings with people doing things for Black History Month while clearly failing to understand the point of it. She concludes her piece by stating the Department of Culture Media and Sport should fund it, agree an annual theme or topic and, it should be overseen by a diverse black committee.
