Event: Black History Celebration at Middleton Arena with Caring and Sharing

Join Caring and Sharing for an evening of music, dance, poetry, fashion and more celebrating Black History Month and the creativity of Rochdale’s black community.

The story of Black History Month begins in 1915, half a century after the Thirteenth Amendment abolished slavery in the United States.

Black History Month is an annual celebration of achievements by Africans, a time for recognising the central role of black people in history.

Celebrating Black History Month honours the historic leaders of the black community and the sacrifice and suffering they endured to secure the rights and freedoms we enjoy in the present. It also helps create awareness of the past so that we can appreciate the progress we’ve made.

Celebrating reminds us that black history is our history, and provides an opportunity to highlight the best of black history and culture.

Black History Month is celebrated to have a better understanding of our shared history, as we all seek to recognise the pains, progress, and accomplishments of the black community.

5.30pm Thursday October 21st at Middleton Arena.
