Black History Month 2022

Every year, every October, we celebrate Black History Month across the University and across the UK. First celebrated in the UK in 1987, Black History Month gives everyone the opportunity to share, celebrate and understand the impact of black heritage and culture ─ how those with African and Caribbean heritage have for centuries played a fundamental role in British history. Remember what they have contributed, what they have achieved. Reflect on whether their contributions are recognised, valued, or are they ignored, forgotten?

Covid-19 has certainly thrown a spotlight on the structural inequalities in our society (and in many cases entrenching them). Our recent submission to the UK Parliament's Women and Equalities Committee outlines the unequal impact of COVID-19 on women and black and minority ethnic (BAME) groups.

The world's leading society publishers, American Chemical Society (ACS) Publications, announces its plans to aggressively combat bias in all aspects of the publishing process, including systemic under-representation of Blacks in this endeavor (no ACS journal is currently led by a Black Editor-in-Chief)
