Black History Month Celebration

To bring people together to share skills and share knowledge. After the tensions that are within communities currently, people see each other as one race – The human race. We are all born to love, but through the passage of time, we start to sometimes discriminate on the grounds of race,

Everybody has a story, bringing the African culture to share, the norms within. It is to bring the community together to share experience and ideas, so we can know one another better. We want to explore some of our cultural customs together. The idea of Umoja – which is an African expression of a way of life, the concept of sharing, of togetherness to success. To be equally concerned about another as you are of yourself. We want to be able to teach one another more than just the everyday.

We want to showcase local talent and art, through the lens of the African historical experience as well as the current legacy of the Black experience.

Methodology

We will do this by engaging with educational institutions such as schools, community groups and statutory organisations such as Vivacity, Peterborough city council and Health and social NHS community health teams. The populace is what we want to engage with. Partnership working to deliver a Black centric project, that allows us to explore the human experience. To reduce fear and ignorance of one another. To create dialogue towards cohesive practice and introducing an opportunity to work creatively as well as educate with community groups , British red cross, salaam radio and radio Cambridgeshire and Look East, as well as schools and local religious organisations. We will create a vision of togetherness.
