Black History Month

Black History Month 2023 has a theme of "Celebrating our Sisters, Saluting our Sisters, and Honouring Matriarchs of Movements". It aims to emphasise the vital role that black women have played in shaping history, inspiring change, and building communities. See more information on the official Black History Month Website.

To celebrate BHM 2023 we have selected 10 books by Black female authors, on subjects ranging from business, art, and education. We also have several other ways for you to learn about BHM, including a reading list, a Box of Broadcasts Playlist, and our trivia trail (read more below!).
