ArtsEd Day School & Sixth Form recognise and celebrate Black History Month

Posted on: October 23rd, 2023 by Marketing User

On 20th October, our Day School & Sixth Form students and staff celebrated Black History Month with various events across the day.

Over the past few weeks our ArtsEd Day School & Sixth Form corridors have been filled with displays recognising the significance of Black History.

These displays and events help spread the awareness that, although we use Black History Month in October as a platform to celebrate Black history.  We also should pause to recognise those that have paved the way before us and to prompt important discussions about what the future could hold for young members of the Black community today. A message that is relevant across the rest of the eleven months of the year too.

Happy Black History Month everyone!
