Celebrating Black History Month at UWE Bristol.

Celebrating Black History Month at UWE Bristol

At UWE Bristol, our ultimate goal is to foster a society where Black history and experiences are valued, celebrated, and integrated into mainstream consciousness throughout the entire year, promoting a more inclusive and equitable understanding of history.

The theme #SalutingOurSisters highlights the crucial role that Black women have played in shaping history, inspiring change, and building communities.

October is Black History Month. However, we recognise that Black history should never be a task or check box for people to complete for one month of the year. Recognising and learning Black history should be a constant activity.

Through a more inclusive and diverse curriculum, Black history can be celebrated every day and treated as a crucial and essential part of our historical discourse and understanding.

Celebrating Excellence

This edition of Celebrating Excellence provides an interdisciplinary, cross-university exposition of the brilliance that Black heritage professionals add to UWE Bristol and the Higher Education sector.

In this collection we particularly recognise and salute the women who have been nominated and our colleagues and peers, who have not made this year’s collection.
