Well it’s almost that time again folks when Britain recognises selected areas of black history during the month of October.
Selected areas of black history usually covered during this period…
1) A brief look at the horrors of slavery and then fast forward straight through to Britain abolishing slavery.
2) The Windrush years – when hundreds of West Indians travelled to the “mother country” in 1948 on a ship called The Empire Windrush in search of a better life and more opportunities as promised by the old Empire. What happened and the hardships they faced after they arrived is usually played down and glossed over.
3) A look at famous black Britains who are usually sports stars, some of which would rather not acknowledge their skin colour or history.
4) Music, singing, dancing.
But I digress, Black History Live will launch the start of Black History Month at the iconic Wembley Stadium on the 1st and 2nd of October 2011.
